Dr Black And The Guerrillia is a bit of a romp. And it’s an engrossing one at that: the writing is evocative in some places and wryly amusing in others. The author also switches styles frequently, at times even approaching the dizzying info-bullets reminiscent of cyberpunk. It makes for an exhilarating read.

–David Hebblethwaite, The Zone

I’d be hard-pressed to pick my favorite parts of the narrative. I mean,
the encounter while “under the influence,” of some local druggery, with the God of Metanatural History ranks right up there. As does the slime molds playlet. As does the interior monologue leading up to Dr. Black’s possible shooting at the hands of a firing squad. It’s insanely wonderful stuff–daft, droll, and experimental in a fun way.

–Jeff Vandermeer, author of City of Saints and Madmen

Anyone who enjoys dark quirky fiction and concise efficient prose would be well advised to check [it] out . . .

Eternal Night

I consider myself lucky because I have in my hands one of these 300 books. The people of literature, those who love books as a form of art, and not only for their content, will definitely understand me. It is a publication on which extra care was lavished, so even simply leafing through it gives you a different sensation.

      This comment is hidden to you.My vote is to release with the new bits if it is not going to take too long. It’s always nice to get more than you expected. I like to over deliver when I ship my jewelry by always including something neat and unnx;ected.  • &nbspp  • &ebsp;This comment is hidden to all users except to its author!

    Loved Red-Haired man in a Sweater. Beautifully written. When the cat ate the dog that sounded like a bird was probably my favorite part.

  4. brendanconnell says:

    Thanks Chris. That should be part of the forthcoming Dr. Black collection from PS Publishing – which will finally put all the Dr. Black material (including unpublished work) in one easy-to-reach place.

  5. […] Brendan Connell’s Dr. Black stories (like the one in issue #12 for example) come to mind. There be scenes in these stories that seem unrelated to the rest of the narrative thread. But, when you finish the story, you realize that they helped elucidate another scene in the story. […]

    Will “Dr. Black at the Red Demon Temple” (originally slated for the defunct Polyphony 7 anthology) be included in the forthcoming PS Publishing Dr. Black collection?

    • brendanconnell says:

      Well, Polyphony 7 was never actually published. But yes, this story will be in the Dr. Black collection.
