My Life with the Hare

I just found out that Athena Pappas of Shady Side Review featured a poem I wrote for them in a vlog post back in 2012.

Here’s a link to the video. Mine  starts around 1:25. And thanks to Athena for featuring my bizarre animal fable poem!

American Book Review

Brooke Wonders, author of this amazing story in Clarkesworld Magazine, was kind enough to write a review of Electricity and Other Dreams for the American Book Review.


“This collection is exuberantly intelligent and succeeds at speaking to a range of social phenomena while working within a playful yet incisive folkloric mode. The collection is a strong debut that ranks Hicks among other excellent contemporary fabulists from Blake Butler to Carmen Maria Machado to Karin Tidbeck. These are twenty-five guns well juggled.”
