Reviews

"With bits of machinery culled from post-apocalyptic science fiction, gothic horror, and ancient myth and ritual, Brian Conn has built a beguiling puzzle box of a novel. "The Fixed Stars" is a thorny, disjunctive fable that unfolds like a nightblooming flower. This is strange, intoxicating stuff."--Jedediah Berry, author of "The Manual of Detection"

Brian Conn s wonderfully perilous crossbreeding of Science Fiction and innovative prose reads like what might result if Dhalgren and A Canticle for Leibowitz engaged in salacious acts with The Tibetan Book of the Dead. The Fixed Stars is a funny, absurd, and beatifically strange book, one in which you simultaneously have the feeling that not one word is out of place and that everything that language brings to us opens onto a void. The Fixed Stars is the future of the future, and it is a truly outstanding debut. Brian Evenson, author of The Wavering Knife and Altmann's Tongue"
