Paul Jessup gave a shout out and some kind words to Echoboy on his blog:
"Absolutely surreal and poetic and fantastical and amazing."
Here's his full post.
I recently discovered Paul in a post on Jeff VanderMeer's blog: Conversations with the Bookless: Paul Jessup.
VanderMeer linked to one of Paul's stories: Apple Magick, which made me woozy upon reading it. Woozy from its freedom with form. I myspace stalked Paul and sent him an email to let him know that he'd helped me figure out what to do post-Echoboy. Which is to write bunches and bunches of mytho-speculative short stories.
Which I'm going to go plink around on now for half an hour.
Again, THANKS PAUL!
