Pascal Garnier /// The A26
Garnier is certainly related to Simenon insofar as you would feel like a future murder victim if you walked into a stranger’s apartment and saw every novel he wrote arranged in an impeccable row on the bookshelf.

Jeff VanderMeer /// Annihilation
The far-out science and atmospheric dread are there, but I can’t in good conscience approve of very much of the prose. The cliffhanger just makes you wonder why FSG is publishing it as a trilogy in the first place. Are SF nerds really that intimidated by 600-page novels?

Ultra Vivid Scene /// “Mercy Seat” /// Ultra Vivid Scene

Is it time to go home yet.

April 12, 2014

When she goes to bed, which is earlier and earlier now, he stays up at the computer. He checks the weather, reads an online tabloid, and plays backgammon with someone who says he’s a retiree. Who wins is an open issue, and shortly after midnight the retiree logs off. So then he surfs around, visiting a variety of websites, these days thinking about things he hasn’t thought about since he was a child. People who can predict things. Clocks that stop when someone dies. Calves with two heads, and women who kill people. The latter is an anomaly, and yet he has noticed that perpetrators in TV crime shows are most often women. He knows it’s a technical thing: a desire to surprise the viewer.

'I find him more disgusting every day. He's drunk by ten in the morning, and every evening I get a pasting because some customer has been giving me the eye, or for any old thing. Shall I tell you what? I wish he'd die.'

'That'll happen.'

'Yes, but when?'
