Re: Brian Evenson

Thanks to N/A for the recommend on Evenson's The Brotherhood of Mutilation. I read it last night and it's a doozy. A nice little murder mystery surrounded by a bizarre setting and characters that are surprisingly well defined for such a short work.

Sort of reminds me of some of Peter Greenaway's films (particularly The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover) with a grotesque environment and chilling characters wrapped around an (almost) standard genre plot - a very impressive and nasty little piece of literature!
