Another very nice review of the book is up at With Extra Pulp: 'To simply sweep over these stories as “Washington circa post-September 11″ stories would not be sufficient. Stinston’s stories are filled with dark humour and odd characters, some of whom reappear throughout. And a dead dog. Fourteen short stories make up “Known Unknowns”. The uncertainty of the people of America, and larger global shift that occurred in September 11’s aftermath, provide only a faint backdrop to the stories in here. Stories which stand independently and become almost beacons of the short story genre.'
I really enjoyed this, too: ‘Also, just an aside, I did a very broad sweep of Googledom to gauge other people's reactions and possibly respond to. What I found was Stinson's own blog post, where he read and reviewed Irma Gold's review of his book for Overland's blog. That's confusing right? Authors reviewing reviews of their book? One sec, I'm dizzy.’ Does this now mean I’m now reviewing this review of my review of Irma Gold’s review of my book? If so, that’s awesome.
Read the whole review here.
