Michael Cisco, one of our best mega-surrealist-absurdist fiction eccentrics, now has his own Web site, with news, links, and other information.

I've written about Cisco before on this blog, especially about his unpublished novel The Traitor which I hope to facilitate the release of when my schedule frees up a bit.

Cisco is working the outer edges and he's an important writer to read because he's continually pushing. His fiction is challenging and uncomforting to the reader. And that's precisely why we need him.

Michael gets a mention here, while Jeff is publicized here.

She doesn't always talk about Jesus, to be fair; she also spend a great deal of time describing how her sensitive vampires cry. A lot.
