Author: Meerkat


We were thrilled to see Publishers Weekly weigh in on Seb Doubinsky’s next installment in his City-States series, Missing Signal. The book releases on 8/28/18! The tense, sparse prose of this novella—which explicitly names its inspirations in the aesthetics of Michelangelo Antonioni’s “beautiful emptiness,” William S. Burroughs’s theories, and the porn and B-movies of the 1960s and ’70s, as well as the tropes of alien encounters in early SF—matches its strong themes of loneliness, paranoia, and the search for identity in a world of deception. -Publishers Weekly   Missing Signal Author: Seb Doubinsky Genres: General Fiction, Science Fiction, Speculative...

Epperson Novel Has Allusions | Phillip Martin – Arkansas Democrat Gazette

Phillip Martin talks to Tom Epperson about his new novel, Roberto to the Dark Tower Came, in a fascinating and enlightening article, “Epperson Novel Has Allusions.”   Full Article & Interview Roberto is a lot like Epperson’s two previous novels, 2008’s The Kind One and 2012’s Sailor, both cinematic hard-boiled crime novels that simultaneously revel in and subvert the conventions of the Los Angeles detective novel.

It’s like Raymond Chandler and Joseph Conrad teamed up to write a thriller. -Phillip Martin, Arkansas Democrat Gazette...
