A zillion years ago, in the tiny spaces of my tiny mind, tangled yarns confused. O come! Come, reader! Join me as we -- characters all -- snip to clip the endless loop of interior consternation. Come, reader!

The star of this book is also it's shadow: Jeffra Hays creates a vernacular and the world to go with it that feels both like an authentically realized space, and a confusing one. There were many lost in translation moments that rereading didn't help to clarify, but the unfolding of the plot kept things moving well regardless. Hays creates a world to be experienced, if not always understood - but like visiting a country where you don't know the language has its rewards, so does reading this novel. Playful language, interesting characters, and one of the strangest sex scenes to be encountered in fiction make this an indie book and author worth your attention.

Well, we were warned that this was abnormal paranormal with wraith-inhibited sinning. That is a mild description! I enjoyed this wacky futurist story that even had the vocabulary to accompany it! Let me warn you that you need to be shut away from civilisation to be able to appreciate this unusual tale.
