Steve Erickson recommends
Mother Howl (2023)
Craig Clevenger
"Clevenger's riveting, fearless and unshakeable Mother Howl is noir from the cold side of the sun, where Icarus is gravity's assassin and every search for the self leads through a black star."
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."
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."
