DOIN' A LITTLE DANCE, SINGIN' A LITTLE SONG...

UPDATE: Clare Dudman has posted an extensive interview with me here. She didn't ask the usual questions and I felt very comfortable giving candid answers.

"Here is a desert island book, a tale you can lose yourself in for days, a novel of character in which the setting--the magnificently gritty city-state named Ambergris--proves as the light fails to be the finest character of all." - Gene Wolfe, blurbing Shriek...

"VanderMeer explores brilliantly, penetratingly, the frail, evanescent intersection of human understanding and historical actuality. In the telling, Shriek:An Afterword is an exceptional novel, a tapestry of fine writing, deep psychological insight, and acute narrative excitement...Shriek: An Afterword is a dark fantasy of tremendous distinction." - Nick Gevers, Locus, January issue

Not that I'm at all surprised. :)
