The Silverberg Business coverWell here’s a fine thing that should set many a Small Beer reader’s Spider senses tingling: John Crowley — whose own new novel Flint and Mirror comes out next month from Tor — sent along this note after reading an early copy of Robert Freeman Wexler’s forthcoming novel, The Silverberg Business:

“Certainly the strangest book I’ve ever read, and strangeness is a thing that I take to. The grotesque horrors, the impossibilities, the shifting scenes, Silverberg’s skull, the skull-heads, the wooden house that turns into a mansion without the detective finding it particularly odd. It is in fact a book not like anything I’ve ever read.”
— John Crowley, author of Little, Big
