I’m slowly coming to the opinion that Brian Francis Slattery’s prose is like very rich chocolate dessert: absolutely wonderful, but you can’t take too much of it at once. Perhaps he should just write short stories, except that Liberation is an even better novel than Spaceman Blues, and even if I was starting to glaze over on the sumptuous prose I still wanted to know what happened next. Despite Jeff VanderMeer bravely picking Liberation as Amazon’s best SF&F book of the year, I don’t suppose the book will have a huge market. However, it is most definitely my sort of book. I’m also giving Liz Gorinsky a Best Editor: Long Form nod on the basis of it.
