    One thought on “poisonhorse”

    1. Another fantastic Nephew title from Mud Luscious Press that does not disappoint. Brandi Wells' poisonhorse is a compelling, surreal fable. Her language is simple but searing as she unravels a series of strange situations and images, a layered universe of people within people within cisterns within wombs within themselves, growing trees and talks heads within the stomachs of bears. A fable of heartbreak and horror, it is delightful the way Wells unfolds the various stages of the story, each new b [...]

    3. Four stars for now. Might deserve another one. I find with Nephew titles that they really deserve a second read before any clear thoughts can be made in my braingrapes. Really dug it though.

    4. Nephew nephew nephew how do you do it? Brandi Wells (along with Shane Jones, Zachary Schomburg and others) are masters at making the more real than real, e.g. surreal. I dream of fur. I dream of rats and crows and earth and circus bears. And of course many many poisonhorses."MY BODY IS LEANER. MY MOVEMENTS ARE SWOOPING AND IF I DOUBLE OVER THERE ARE FOUR OF ME."Thank you Brandi Wells. And thank you Nephew and Mud Luscious. YEP YEP!!! Hear hear!!!
