Michael Cisco

Michael is one of my absolute favourite authors working today. His writing conveys the crepuscular enigma of Ligotti and Lovecraft, the introspection of Kafka, the word-sorcery of Borges.

More importantly, Michael Cisco reaches past his influences, fashioning a canon that is wholly his own.

I'm glad to see Jeff VanderMeer singing Michael's praises here.
