“Murder is afoot, or aslither, in Newport Bay, the setting for Eric Olson’s bracingly odd, darkly infolding tale of a Pacific Northwest hamlet where the shellfish have come up to take the air, the townspeople are turning very strange and the television cameras are rolling. Twin Peaks meets The Living Planet (with a dash of Groundhog Day) in this brilliant debut — Olson is off to an exciting start.”
--Laird Hunt, author of The Impossibly, Indiana, Indiana, and The Exquisite.
"If Fletch took Lovecraft to see a movie and it turned out to be a double
feature--'Slugs: muerte viscosa' and 'The Monster that Challenged the
World'--this post-genre romp is what might have been extracted from their
post-movie dreams. This is a smart, funny, and (most importantly)
irreverently weird book."
--Brian Evenson, author of The Open Curtain and The Wavering Knife.
