Michael Dirda on Zoran Zivkovic

Michael Dirda of The Washington Post recently provided a write-up of independent publishers of fantastic fiction, and had some very nice things to say about The Last Book:

As one who can never resist a bookish mystery, especially one with supernatural elements, I was deeply grateful when a friend sent me a copy of The Last Book, by Zoran Zivkovic (translated from the Serbian by Alice Copple-Tosic). Zivkovic is one of the most attractive new writers to enter fantasy recently, and he’s been mightily prolific, with much of his work brought out by PS, including his fat collection Impossible Stories. In general, the erudite Zivkovic may be likened to a more playful Borges, touched with a bit of Calvino and Kafka.

In addition to PS Publishing, which released The Last Book in the UK, Dirda also mentions several other small specialty presses that are certainly worth your attention.
