Brandon and I started reading fiction submissions for Fringe Magazine this time last year. And now, we’re writing book reviews for the blog. For those of you unfamiliar with Fringe, we aim to publish edgy, experimental work. What does that even mean? It’s best to just read for yourself. My favorite stories: Terry & Tawny & Lucinda, by J.A. Tyler and My Magpie Eyes, My Trampoline Heart by Claire Mapletoft. We’ve even gone so far as to publish pornographic photos in a post-modern type piece about suspects involved in burning down a theatre. Not for shock value. But because it fit.
The past two weeks, I’ve reviewed three books (here): Ethel Rohan’s Hard To Say, J.A. Tyler’s A Man of Glass & All the Ways We Have Failed, and Yelizaveta Renfro’s A Catalogue Of Everything in the World: Nebraska Stories.
My absolute favorite: J.A. Tyler’s A Man of Glass.
