DEMONSTRA reviewed at Martian Migraine Press
A big thanks goes to Scott R. Jones who recently gave DEMONSTRA (Innsmouth Free Press, 2013) a glowing review at Martian Migraine Press in "Bending, Curving, Humming Cosmic: Bryan Thao Worra’s Sublime DEMONSTRA"
Among the highlights of his review:
"DEMONSTRA is clever, insightful, compassionate, often funny, sublime. Worra brings a very human eye to the world he sees, and that world is filled with, yes, Lovecraftian critters and deities, rampaging kai-ju, giant robots, and the occasional zombie, but also the cultural warping of the Lao diaspora, the god-forms and spirit beings of Laotian belief systems, wrestling sages, surreal road trips, and the meathook realities of wars public, secret, and internal."
Thanks again, Scott! I appreciate it when a reviewer really gets it, especially when it comes to poetry.
Scott R. Jones' fiction and poetry has been published in Broken City Mag, Innsmouth Magazine, and Cthulhu Haiku 2. He is the author of the short horror story collection SOFT FROM ALL THE BLOOD and THE ECDYSIASTS, a book of literary flash fiction. He’s currently polishing up a book of essays that detail an auto-ethnographical approach to R’lyehian spirituality, When The Stars Are Right, due out in early 2014 from Martian Migraine Press.
