Verbicide

D. Harlan Wilson's Primordial: An Abstraction is among Verbicide Magazine's Top 11 Books of 2014. The compiler of the list has this to say:

"Making fun of academia is great, and this is the novel I’d been waiting for because it does exactly that, but with enough intelligence that any reply is impossible. D. Harlan Wilson is one of the wittiest writers working today, and this one is as personal and smart as it is wild and funny."

Update

The hardcover edition of Laurence A. RickelsGermany: A Science Fiction will be officially released a bit later than expected in March 2015, although preorders should be delivered in February. After Germany, our next title will be the paperback reprint of Kim Stanley Robinson's irreal fantasy novel A Short, Sharp Shock. The reprint will include an introduction by Robert Crossley, author of Imagining Mars: A Literary History, as well as a study guide for use in the classroom.
