I have an Apocryfan!

Just read here on Feb 14:

“…in ‘The Apocryphan’, Bonnyville seems like a place one could genuinely stroll around, dig behind, poke around in; there’s an authentic sense of place. And the characters that inhabit this novella are three-dimensional too. The fact that the story is told in many interrelated brief sections, rather than as a single clump, also helps to open out the piece still further and lighten it more; or perhaps the structure was necessitated by the spry content (the tone is spry, but it is dark sprightliness.) And yes, the mode is melancholy despite the briskness; and the briskness is luxurious, not hectic; and this peculiar mix of rates of flow and density of detail is handled with supreme skill.”

The Apocryfan

A reprise of Tony Lovell’s sculptural vision of The Apocryphan that appears in ‘The Last Balcony’ collection, a novella which is about to receive its very first review from perhaps its very first independent reader.
