Jottings from a Far Away Place released + new review

December 1, 2015

Jottings from a Far Away Place was released today.

There is also a review out from the Strange Library.

Quote: “It’s a book that does things to my head in the best way, a book where each section has its own unique rhythms and place, but that builds on the sections by featuring recurring characters and themes as it goes along. If nothing else, I have to say the closest thing I’ve ever read is either the Zhuangzi or the works of Ryu Murakami (with their own brand of meditative gorn), and Connell manages to distance himself from those works pretty thoroughly just by dint of being a lot more bizarre.”

May 27, 2015

Over at Blogcritics, Bill Sherman has written a nice review of The Galaxy Club.

I quote:

“If you prefer your pulp fiction challenging and slippery in the mode of early William S. Burroughs, than Brendan Connell’s The Galaxy Club (Chomu Press) may be the read for you.”

The Galaxy Club – The Future Fire Review

June 30, 2014

Djibril al-Ayad has reviewed The Galaxy Club over at The Future Fire.

I quote:

“Connell’s language is poetic, both in the sense that he stretches punctuation and grammar to achieve tone and voice, and that sentences or whole pages are sometimes so musical that you have to stop and re-read them out loud to be sure you heard yourself correctly inside your head.”
