Blake Butler's SCORCH ATLAS

Post by Rhordain on Sun Oct 24, 2010 10:23 pm

This was posted on Facebook, which led me to purchase the book. I love it so far and wanted to see what others thought of it, if they've read it. If not, you should. Best first name for a writer, too.

Also wanted to mention to anyone who cares that one of the better writing professors here put the book on the syllabus for next semester's graduate writing workshop, and I'm really jealous and mad that I can't take the class.

Wanna know a secret?


I reviewed that for St #3.....Ken nabbed a copy and shifted it to me and it blew my mind...as in my skull popped open and all sorts of squirmy, feathery, shrieky things billowed out.

Did you see my post about it on Facebook? Either way, that's awesome. What school/professor is teaching it?

I also just pimped this in the interview I did with Decibel Magazine. Such a killer book.

Yeah, I saw your post about it. That's why I decided to check it out.

Stephen Graham Jones, resident horror buff, is teaching it at CU Boulder.

You can read some of it on Amazon, if you click the book image.
