    1. Procession of Shadows's premise——nine self-contained stories that construct a "novel of Tamoga" (a spiritual companion of my beloved Invisible Cities? consider me aroused)——sounds like a beautiful thing (and it is oh yes it is).

    2. This first book by Rios shows influences by Poe and Faulkner and, like many first novels by young men, an absolute hatred of suffocating life in a small town. As a result, the townspeople are painted in shades of black (unless they're handicapped, then a saintly glow overtakes their features). Nonetheless, Rios shows a great capacity for nuance of detail and narrative voice. I look forward to reading his other novels, also published by Dalkey Archive (one of my favorite, dependable publishers).
