…who are two of my own personal favorites, appear on an ‘Underrated Writers’ list over at an apparently very wise blog. As does literary surrealist/fantasist Steve Erickson, whose DAYS BETWEEN STATIONS absolutely blew me away.
Jim, currently known, among those lucky enough to know him, for his excellent short stories, is writing a novel I expect will deliver great things, for him and for his readers; and may I add that he and Steve are both in Los Angeles. So for those who like to fall back on that tired and dated cliche of LA as some kind of literary bimbo? Guess again, you silly, silly people.
