Entropic Review of Primordial

There's a superb review of Primordial: An Abstraction in Entropy Magazine. Here are a few passages:

"Primordial is a fiercely modern novel, an absurd, ultra-violent romp that exposes and lays waste to the Ivory Tower in an orgy of violence and absurdity, written with surgical precision. It’s terse and as dense as lead. It is deceptively simple, and an ugly delight. . . . The economy of Wilson’s prose is impressive. Like his protagonist, it is lean and muscular, and every word here is used for maximum effect. . . . Smoldering at the crossroads of Franz Kafka, William Burroughs, Anthony Burgess and Henry Rollins, Primordial is Wilson’s academic id running wild."

San Francisco Book Review

My latest novel, Primordial: An Abstraction, has received a 4-star review in San Francisco Book Review. Here's the verdict:

"And so it is that the reader is lead through the kaleidoscope of harm – pornography, random violence, death, tune in, drop out, swallow this before this swallows you. Does it all read as randomly connected mind droppings? Oh hell yeah. Is it that? Oh hell no. I have a protective interest in revealing the totality of an author's work, so I shall not delve further into Wilson's personal hallucinogens wrought on paper, other than to say we've been there, and we'd prefer to think we hadn't done that. Read this book. It's not your father's Oldgrishamobile."
