Pablo D'Stair's this letter to Norman Court is a novella that he's releasing in short sections on various blogs. (Click that link to see where he's been and where he's going.)
He started over at Nigel Bird's Sea Minor and today he's at Bill Crider's Pop Culture Magazine with part six in the series.
Not only is this a fresh idea in how the piece is released and read, but it's a brilliant work. What sets D'Stair apart is his distinctive voice. While many writers these days (including myself!) are tending toward short, clipped sentences, he writes languid, flowing sentences, connected by a lot commas, unafraid to mimic his narrator's strange thought patterns.
The plot is deceptively simple and filled with mystery--not the "whodunit" kind of mystery but the "what the hell is really going on?" kind of mystery. He builds a quiet yet furious intensity, and by the end of each chapter I found myself desperate for more.
He'll be here on Wednesday with Part 7 (the first fiction published at DBK!) and I'm proud to be hosting.
