Review in Pleiades 35.1

Screenshot2015-01-03at1.00.56PMThe latest issue of Pleiades has a great story by Brenda Peynado, and a very kind review of Electricity and Other Dreams by Jennifer Schomburg Kanke. Here’s an excerpt from the review:

“The genre and the literary blend together without the seams showing as Hicks works his magic. Wether you want to think of him as Charles Dickens with tattooed chickens or a Grindhouse Aimee Bender, you’ll want to take a look at Electricity and Other Dreams to see what the changing face of contemporary literary fiction’s future looks like. ”

Also, this cover by Ryan McLennan is my new favorite thing. See more of his work here.
