Steve Erickson recommends
The Orange Eats Creeps (2010)
Grace Krilanovich
"A 'vampire' novel as Céline might have written, with dashes of Blake and Burroughs: hallucinatory, poetic, passionate, excessive, sexually charged, hardcore in all the best senses of the word. Twilight this is not."
Shaky Town (2021)
Lou Mathews
"No one writes, or maybe ever has written, as well as Mathews about the local streets and their navigations, liberations, and traps, as brilliantly demonstrated in these stories."
