"RRRoze is an enigmatic writer; his world tantalizing, giving new breath to the post-apocalypse; full of angst, tensions, and questions of truth. It's a tease to the reader's mind, engulfing you more with every passing word." - Alexandria Martinez, author of The Zephyllwen Chronicles
"He's an anarcho-desperado. A covert renegade waging a silent propaganda war against the shadow government to rescue the mass consciousness from the hypnosis devices." - Stefan Lebron, Singer Of Hoohak Flower
"Rose is a breathless storyteller with the heart of a poet, who delivers unmatched ferocity with words unafraid, audacious, and wild. His stories fly out of him as if effortless and by necessity. He captures fleeting details almost fiendishly and allows no textbook standard to gnaw at his originality. Idealistic, fanciful, and impervious to the prodding fingers of the culture which begs one to conform, it is as if Rose is compelled by some mysterious and silent fire lit beyond the ether. In a world of cheap tricks, Rose is a true visionary."
Rose began writing in 2004 and published E.O.N.S with publishamerica.lame in 2005. In 2012 and 2013 Black Rose Writing first pressed both So It Ends & So It Begins. His titles Jesus Christ!, Before The Aftermath, and Vaguely Vivid are always available for free as E-books through Smashwords.com or for sale in print from Amazon.com. In 2014 Rose published Tai/Dice using the moniker Riqi. Look out for hidden surprises and much more to come in the future.

Brief and centered I will to be: 1. I am compelled to review this art. 2. complicated the reasons why! 3. In part, a narcissistic empathy for the author and the subject matter. 4. Also, my book.
We share certain themes. Our styles are so different. These themes: limerence, worship of Woman, drugs and altered realities, isolation and alienation, disillusion, esoteric learning.
Our styles: The author writes in free form, stream of consciousness. I write in formal and structured grammer (not to say the author does not have structure because he is very disciplined in his writing. Dealing with similar material working to similar ends, the glorification of our scandalous behavior and the valley of the shadow promising redemption, the psychological development is incongreous. I feel the eternal optimist compared to Roze's seeming dread and dispair.
This review is a work in progress. Only have read two chapters. The first chapter I find to be oppressive. The second chapter is very cute.
Thank you, RRRRoze. I am Ronny Knape
