decomP magazinE Review of Electricity and Other Dreams

Spencer Dew over at decomP magazinE wrote an amazing review of Electricity and Other Dreams for the August issue. This might be my favorite one to date:

“To embody the fairytale, to crawl into that space, sticky with candy and blood, curl up fetus-like and light up a mentholated smoke… Or, to phrase it another way, to birth the fairytale into our own world, to scrape a gaff against its side and drag the whole thing out, wet and mewling, a weird marriage of worlds… This is what Hicks does, or both of these, a kind of monstrous stitching, back and forth.”

Man, now I just want to go read something by Dew!
