One thing I stopped doing last year and would like to start again is posting reviews, or at least brief comments, about the books I’ve recently read. I’ll start with posting a few of the books I recently finished and already reviews on Goodreads and/or Amazon.
First off, then…
Earlier this year, one of my favorite writers released her second collection. That writer is Livia Llewellyn, and her book is Furnace.
On Goodreads I wrote:
“Darkly wonderful, powerful and lushly poetic writing. Livia Llewellyn creates her own genre merging the erotic, the dreamlike fantastic, and the blackly horrific. In only her second book, she’s working at such an amazingly high level, and has already become a powerful magicians of the word. Livia Llewellyn ranks among my very favorite writers.”
Also, I discuss my reaction to Furnace at greater length on Scott Nicolay’s The Outer Dark podcast, in episode 33. I talk about Furnace and other “News of the Weird” in between the two interviews, so somewhere in the middle. Link HERE.
