A Foreword by the Illustrious Steve Erickson
I was there and I’m still confused by our connection to Steve Erickson.
The man makes us go bananas, I’ve tried to tell him—likely to no avail. Perhaps more than any other living author, he personifies what The Velvet’s writers so voraciously adore in fiction.
There is a distinct vitality in his approach to story. An unmitigated and unfeigned desire for freshness. While the need to restore image over and over is lost amid the affection for new beauty or higher language. That he found any part of WARMED AND BOUND favorable speaks to his warmhearted and openminded nature, above all else.
As accidental forewords go, I couldn’t have thought up a more appropriate author to dream into our book.
