Editorial Reviews


I was sucked into Ron Dakron's prose and the world he created . . . I do recommend that you check it out and ... let yourself get sucked into the tale Dakron is weaving.

Ron Dakron . . . is among the very small cadre of experimental fiction whose substance actually matches its style --Adam Groves, The Fright Site

Dakron provides a side-splitting adventure that'll give anyone the much needed laugh they deserve in life.  "Mantids" is a must for humor readers seeking something with a twist. --Midwest Book Review, February 2009, Vol. 4, No. 2

About the Author

Ron Dakron is the author of five novels--Hello Devilfish!, Mantids, Hammers, Newt and infra. His work runs the gamut from surrealism to sci-fi pastiche. Point No Point tagged his novels as a cross between jive bullshit, hip-hop Henny Youngman, and full-tilt Rimbaudian street-smartass sublimity. Raven Chronicles judged him as sinister as a thirteen-year-old with a lighter and a keg of butane. Publishers Weekly deemed him a writer with a fine ear and plenty of gusto.
