(audiobook) Review - Heraclix and Pomp by Forrest Aguirre


The wonderfully quirky book, Heraclix and Pomp, by Forrest Aguirre gets a review over at Sffaudio.com, by usual place for all audiobook reviews. Here a snippet from the review (which is found here):
There are some books that are just magical, that are written in such a way that you can’t help but be drawn into a new world even if it’s set against our own. Neil Gaiman writes this way and so does Susanna Clark in Johnathan Strange and Mr. Norrell.
Forrest Aguirre, World Fantasy Award winner for his editorial work in the Leviathan 3 anthology, has created such a tale. The story of Heraclix and Pomp is magical before the magic even begins, or possibly just at the same time.

If you're looking for some beautifully-written fantasy that doesn't trod along all the familiar paths, you'll enjoy Heraclix and Pomp.

I was already familiar with author's writing style from some of his short stories I read before; I expected the same high writing quality as in the stories I mentioned and I was not disappointed. This time Forrest Aguirre's demonstrates his good qualifications in storytelling as well.

Heraclix and Pomp sits firmly in one of the most difficult to define niches around: "Wierd fiction". The wierd is tough to describe, but easy to recognize when you see it. And this one is a fine example that simultaneously delights and unsettles the reader. While doing so, it begs to be sipped and savored. Barrel on through at your own risk.
