Book of the Week

As you all might have guessed by now, I have a bit of a soft spot for the literary work of Matt Ruff. However, with this latest novel of his, it seems like others are liking his work as well. In fact, I just read that it has been chosen to become the inspiration for an upcoming HBO TV series.

Even if you aren't into HBO, the book makes for an interesting read. After all, critics have been justly dissing H. P. Lovecraft for his racism for years but Matt Ruff seemed to be one of the few writers who have dared to make literary lemonade from Lovecraft's sour prejudices. And he tells a good story too -- so good I dare not tell you too much for fear of spoilers.
