Baseball starts today and there’s fresh C4 haiku! How could today get any better?


Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter

judge by its cover:

well-written but the plot lacks

stands an Edgar shot


The Dream of Perpetual Motion

awesome sci-fi novel

hype actually lived to

steampunk-y Great Read


Remarkable Creatures

creatures take back seat

naturalism: the tale

superbly structured


The Universe in Miniature in Miniature

great writing in here

delivers on the funny

good humor is earned


Skippy Dies

catholic school boys

amuck in a brilliant book

like a brand new joyce



so much goddamn hype!

the literary darling,

russell disappoints


The Informationist


escape fantasy

Stevens is cult escapee

better off memoir
