Aurealis Magazine Reviews ROAD SEVEN by Keith Rosson

Aurealis Magazine reviewed Keith Rosson’s new novel, ROAD SEVEN and we loved what they had to say. Be sure to check out the full review in the magazine!

Keith Rosson brings a magnificence to the literary weird, casting a new lens to crossgenre speculative fiction loaded with crime and sabotage, etched with secrecy and horror.

Aurealis #133

Why do some people hate fantasy and science fiction with a vengeance while others adore it? Is it simply a ‘pineapple on pizza’ thing? A matter of taste? Or is there something more profound at work? I suspect it comes down to a concept that gets thrown around in all sorts of contexts: the suspension of disbelief.

Road Seven

Road Seven

Road Seven follows disgraced cryptozoologist Mark Sandoval—resolutely arrogant, covered head to foot in precise geometric scarring, and still marginally famous after Hollywood made an Oscar-winner based off his memoir years before—who has been strongly advised by his lawyer to leave the country following a drunken and potentially fatal hit and run. When a woman sends Sandoval grainy footage of what appears to be a unicorn, he quickly hires an assistant and the two head off to the woman's farm in Hvíldarland, a tiny, remote island off the coast of Iceland. When they arrive on the island and discover that both a military base and the surrounding álagablettur, the nearby woods, are teeming with strangeness and secrets, they begin to realize that a supposed unicorn sighting is the least of their worries. Road Seven will mark the third of Rosson’s novels to be published by Meerkat Press.

Aurealis Magazine Reviews Folk Songs for Trauma Surgeons

Keith Rosson’s new collection, FOLK SONGS FOR TRAUMA SURGEONS was reviewed by Eugen Bacon in Aurealis Magazine #137. An insightful review of an amazing collection.

Folk Songs for Trauma Surgeons is not your everyday collection. This uncanny offering by Keith Rosson, author of The Mercy of the Tide, Smoke City and Road Seven is a statement, perhaps a rebellion, or a deep and silent bellow: a belly-deep trauma that falls like seditious pebbles out of a tormented jaw.

EUGEN BACON, AUREALIS MAGAZINE #137
Folk Songs for Trauma Surgeons

Folk Songs for Trauma Surgeons

With Folk Songs for Trauma Surgeons, award-winning author Keith Rosson delves into notions of family, grief, identity, indebtedness, loss, and hope, with the surefooted merging of literary fiction and magical realism he’s explored in previous novels. In “Dunsmuir,” a newly sober husband buys a hearse to help his wife spread her sister’s ashes, while “The Lesser Horsemen” illustrates what happens when God instructs the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse to go on a team-building cruise as a way of boosting their frayed morale. In “Brad Benske and the Hand of Light,” an estranged husband seeks his wife’s whereabouts through a fortuneteller after she absconds with a cult, and in “High Tide,” a grieving man ruminates on his brother’s life as a monster terrorizes their coastal town. With grace, imagination, and a brazen gallows humor, Folk Songs for Trauma Surgeons merges the fantastic and the everyday, and includes a number of Rosson’s unpublished stories, as well as award-winning favorites.
