  • Sweet Dream, Silver Screen on March 04, 2010

    A dreamy road movie where nothing much is explained and nothing really needs to. I can easily picture David Lynch or Jim Jarmusch directing it, it has that kind of atmosphere. Perfect!
  • Making Dylan Maxwell on March 05, 2010

    Powerful and provocative, with a certain fight-club-ish undertone. Absolutely loved it. 4 stars instead of 5 just because I'm greedy, and really wanted it to be longer. I am thrilled to have discovered Moxie Mezcal, and I'm anxious to read more.
  • Tokyo Zero on March 07, 2010

    Got this just because I was in the mood to read something about Japan. Now I can't believe I could have missed it. Just read it.
  • That Mouse Is High on March 12, 2010

    Sweet and funny little story. Good fun for the few minutes it takes to read it.
  • The Gumshoe, the Witch, and the Virtual Corpse on March 15, 2010

    In a not so distant future, where homosexuality can be detected by a blood test and subcultures live more or less separated, we are told an intricate twisting and turning story by a multitude of interesting, likeable, fully believable narrators, each with their own unique voice. Part noir mystery, part fantasy, part coming of age story, and so much more, this is an impressively rich and enjoyable read, with playful language, sharp humour, and some truths thrown in the mix. Very highly recommended.
  • Concrete Underground on March 19, 2010

    ..and Concrete Underground was every bit as good as I expected it. I loved its dreamy, cyclical nature. I loved the little inconsequential(or not) details, like the art installations, or the description of the faults of mystery fiction, or the pieces of wisdom spoken by unexpected characters in unexpected moments.. I loved its definite Lynch-esque feel. I loved its punk-as-f*ck language. I will definitely re-read, to catch details I didn't on the first reading, and to enjoy again scenes that stuck with me. Moxie Mezcal is now in my very short list of writers whose books I eagerly await, and will drop everything else to read.
  • DEAD(ish) on March 26, 2010

    I just re-read Dead(ish) and I must say I had as much fun reading it as the first time. While there is definitely a ghost, this is no horror story. (Well, for one hapless character it is, a bit). Meet Linda, the funniest, more creative, vengeful ghost with an attitude. Along with a loser boyfriend, a PI turned exorcist and the gay couple next door, they kept me chuckling all the way from start to finish. I suspect I will happily read it a third time, and a fourth.
  • Maisy May on June 04, 2010

    Let me first confess that I would never normally read a book with the word "christian" on the cover. But having read (and loved) Naomi Kramer's first book, I knew I couldn't really go wrong with this one. As expected, it was not preachy at all, and as expected, it was a joy to read. I loved Maisy's fresh voice and I followed with great interest her journey through doubts, friendships, experimentations, and life changes. She is a strong, interesting, loveable character, and I can't wait for the next novella to see how she's doing. Her direct and honest narration really makes you care for this fictional girl as if she was a close friend.
  • Gumshoe Gorilla on June 04, 2010

    A worthy sequel of The Gumshoe, the Witch, and the Virtual Corpse. I'm loving the setting, I'm loving the characters (who in all their strangeness feel amazingly real), I'm loving the humour. I really hope there will be more books in this series.
