As always, if we have never worked together before and you are interested in reviewing a title, send a query to david.wilson@wright.edu and provide me with a biography of your scholarship and academic standing.

Blurb for BIG CITY

Here's my blurb for Scot Sothern's upcoming Big City. It's by far the best novel I've read so far this year.

“In the latest work of art-prose from the incomparable Stalking Horse Press, Scot Sothern shows that he's not just a linguistic power-hitter, but a dynamic storyteller, too. There’s enough imagination on every page of Big City for an entire novel.”

Preorder the novel here. I've never read Sothern's work before and I was reminded of one of my favorite authors, Steve Aylett.
