Stylistically, Danger keeps growing in the realm of description. He peppers his work with similes that feature strong imagery and sometimes border on non-sequitur, a hallmark of high-quality abstract/surreal writing. They make you think, “what the . . . oh wait that makes sense!” and it changes the way you think forever. I’ll never look at the sun coming up over the horizon again without thinking about the earth as a huge hunk of flesh bleeding sunlight all over the sky. Thanks, dude!
Ultimately, I like watching Danger’s stories evolve over time. Love is a central theme, and through these pages you see his growth not only as a writer, but as a human being. I see tropes here that exist in my own life, and for that reason his work always deeply resonates with me, but also makes me nervous because, when it comes right down to it, our stories boil down to similar primordial stock.
But I always take solace in the fact that, while I put said stock on white bread and mayo, Danger takes that stock and infuses it with a bunch of weird ass Danger spices.
Perhaps the best way to enjoy this book is to think of it as The Twilight Zone in print, if Rod Serling was trying to give all literary convention the middle finger. Not only does it break the fourth wall many times, it at times nukes the damn wall by making the reader think. The thing that holds this book together, and does it so masterfully, is the theme of nothing ever making sense. Hold onto that thought as you read, and Mr. Slater will own your reader's soul to the last page.
It will be interesting to see how he will try to outdo this tale of Harrison and Tabitha Moss. But if anyone has proven himself as a contender in bizarro literature, it's Mr. Slater. Well done, sir!
