The first words I’ll use to describe Erik T. Johnson’s Yes Trespassing are an experience. The book, weighty tome that it is, is something unusual, and that’s before ever getting to the stories.
There are doodles and notes, redactions and QR codes to find stories elsewhere, it comes off as something of a madman’s diary in the modern age. Mr. Johnson and Michael Bailey did a tremendous job at making this thing an original production.
Now onto the stories. These stories fall into no exact categories, there are elements of mystery, horror, science fiction, fantasy, and what-the-hell-is-going-on. I guess this jumbled together is probably the wayward sum of magical realism. There were times when I was confused, other times I was squinting while pondering what the chicken scratch notes in many of the headers and footers had to do with the stories. Often I was left with a sense of but why?
That said, never was I bored. The stories read with an acidic note something akin to Chuck Palahniuk mixed with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. There were some that I didn’t like as much as others, and a set of stories I found myself looking forward to. Sprinkled throughout Yes Trespassing are stories about a supernatural private investigator named Martin Box. These are something to behold. They are odd, absurd, endearing, exciting, and mysterious. They’re worth the cover price alone.
Between the gothic, urban, otherworldly, and the invisible in-between, Yes Trespassing is largely a success, and for the Martin Box tales, a major success. I am impressed wholly by Yes Trespassing, inside and out.
