Over at Blogcritics, Gordon Hauptfleisch give The Life of Polycrates and Other Stories for Antiquated Children a nice review.

An extract:

“”Life of Polycrates” draws you into a grab-bag of epistles, history, classical literature, Greek myth, and some more original fictional elements – where one starts and another begins is anyone’s guess, however.”

1. a rather odd-ball review of The Life of Polycrates and Other Stories for Antiquated Children at Open Letters. I can’t quite decide if it is positive or negative.

2. a story my wife and I translated from the Italian, by Luigi Ugolini, will be published in Ann and Jeff VanderMeer’s forthcoming: THE WEIRD: A Compendium of Strange and Dark Fictions. I am very excited that Ugolini’s tale will be introduced to new readers in English.
