Review: Jabberwocky 1, ed. Sean Wallace [Sep. 24th, 2005|02:25 pm]

The first review is in: http://trashotron.com/agony/news/2005/09-12-05.htm#091605

"Prime hopes that 'Jabberwocky' will be synonymous with what they call "the -ical approach; lyrical, whimsical, mythical, in all its forms, particularly short fiction, poetry and illustrative." I'm ready for a bit of the ol' -ical approach, especially when it comes in a nice, compact and classy little package like this ever-so-peculiar anthology from Prime.

Please, please buy this and help it succeed. I mean, really. What more could we in the weird fiction world ask for than something truly, deeply, madly weird? 'Jabberwocky' is all of this and one essential thing more; 'effin' fantastic. What Sean Wallace has done is to delve into the strange world of quite lyrical, classical weird fiction."

With a lineup that includes the likes of Gemma Files, Holly Phillips, Theodora Goss and many, many more this is the kind of anthology one hopes will become a regular event. And not just annual. They could bump this up to quarterly, and I'd be happy. There's not a poem or a short story in here that is not compelling and compellingly compact."
