I have a big pile of new books in need of review. I will send out a new call for reviewers in the next week or two.

Review of They Live

There's a great little review of my cultography on They Live at San Francisco Book Review. Verdict:

"Wilson cagily weaves philosophy and sociology into his analysis of the film, couching possible interpretations of the film in genuine science and educational paradigms, while still appreciating the film for what it is, be it cult lunacy or eye-opening wake-up call."

Scotomization

A translation of my story "Scotomization" appears in a beautiful new Polish anthology of fiction. Other authors include Edward Lee, Carlton Mellick III and Sam Pink. My story will appear in English later this year in the first volume of Battle without Honor or Humanity via Raw Dog Screaming Press.
