Another Arcane Review

Posted in Writing tagged , at 11:37 am by Van Aaron Hughes

Jon P. Bloch of the Kindle Book Review has posted a five-star review of Arcane, with nice things to say about the anthology and about my story:

Reading [Arcane] is sort of like staying up all night watching a Twilight Zone marathon. Along the way, you get acquainted with the work of many an author. And you’ll be dazzled by the range of plots, characters, time periods, and locales–not to mention writing styles–that can scare the crap out of you.

Picking favorites obviously is a matter of personal choice…. [A] few of my favorites include “The Truth About Mother,” by Van Aaron Hughes, which concerns a detective paid by the wife of a congressman to see if he’s cheating on her. But the entire federal government soon becomes Kafka-esque, and moreover it makes perfect sense that we actually are governed by giant maggots.

Glad you liked it, Jon!
