"The hypnotic prose of THE DREAMING GIRL is effortless to read, especially once the reader gets used to the ways the author flouts convention... The story is archetypal, lovely on the surface, and vaguely disturbing on a deeper level. In a word, dreamlike."
Pick it up today from Ellipsis Press, Small Press Distribution, Amazon, or wherever fine books are sold.

"The six long stories in Stephen-Paul Martin's outstanding CHANGING THE SUBJECT subtly challenge the conventions of the short story through seemingly simple prose that, in strange often hilarious digressions, knots in a fascinating, surreal, and masterful collection... CHANGING THE SUBJECT is a brilliant book..."

There are moments that remind me of Sax Rohmer or early 20th century science fiction, bits and pieces of language that seem to come out of Jules Verne or Gaston LeRoux. The language itself is quite stylized, replete with a carefully eccentric vocabulary that Lock does very well. He has an impressive ability to create a unique and original world. --Brian Evenson
