New from Ellipsis Press author Norman Lock : PIECES FOR SMALL ORCHESTRA & Other Fictions -- out this month from Spuyten Duyvil.
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
