A Handbook of American Prayer has to be the best thing Lucius Shepard has written, and that’s saying something. I’m only 70 pages in, but it’s knocking me out.
Midway through Bright of the Sky, and I’m impressed with Kenyon’s prose. There is a very literate feel to the novel, like Kenyon is painstakingly crafting the world of The Entire and the Rose and while the reading can be slow going at times, it really is an excellent, impressive novel. I don’t think it’ll rank as a favorite, but it’s quality.
