Paperback Paris Gives Tom Epperson’s New Novel 4 Stars

We loved this insightful 4 star review of Tom Epperson’s new novel, Roberto to the Dark Tower Came, and wanted to share it with you!

“While political affairs are often a touchy subject, Tom Epperson makes a case for the corrupt political tensions and scandals plaguing journalists and the indigenous peoples of South America in Roberto to the Dark Tower Came. Dark and gruesome, yet written in a very matter-of-fact, Murakami-esque style that will appeal to fans of all genres, Epperson’s latest work offers a searing look at political turmoil from a new perspective.” -Melissa Ratcliff, PAPERBACK PARIS

 

Roberto to the Dark Tower Came

Roberto to the Dark Tower Came

Roberto, a young left-wing South American journalist, receives an ominous phone call: leave the country in ten days, or die. Roberto is being targeted because of a series of articles he’s written exposing government corruption and violence at the highest levels. Roberto believes the voice on the other end of the phone and has every intention of leaving, as soon as he follows a lead on a major story developing in the jungle: thousands of innocent lives are at stake. The book follows him on his perilous journey into the heart of darkness in pursuit of his story. Unknowingly, Roberto is headed toward a confrontation with an evil darker than he could possibly have imagined.

★ Publishers Weekly Starred Review for Folk Songs for Trauma Surgeons

Publishers Weekly weighs in on Keith Rosson’s debut story collection, Folk Songs for Trauma Surgeons, with a wonderful starred review! The collection releases in February 2021 but is available now for preorder.

With this excellent collection of 15 jagged, fragmented pieces, dark fantasist Rosson subverts expectations and challenges his characters and his readers alike to second-guess their preconceptions. Evil is just as likely to spring from daily life as to lunge out of the supernatural in these disquieting tales.

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.

The Road to Woop Woop & Other Stories

Eugen Bacon’s work is deemed cheeky with a fierce intelligence in text that’s resplendent, delicious, dark and evocative. NPR called her novel Claiming T-Mo ‘a confounding mysterious tour de force’.

Locus Magazine Reviews The Road To Woop Woop By Eugen Bacon

Ian Mond at Locus Magazine reviewed Eugen Bacon’s stunning new collection, The Road to Woop Woop & Other Stories in the November issue of the magazine. The review was in depth and insightful and the magazine is definitely worth checking out if you aren’t already subscribed.

Bacon’s passion for language and her willingness to play with the short-story form, to never settle on one type of narrative or genre, makes this an exciting collection that’s well worth picking up.
