Reminder of new review of Zencore! by Jetse de Vries:
http://tinyurl.com/2cqzmh

This is what I call a 'rite of review', a very personal experience (or struggle) between book and reader.

Other examples of a 'rite of review' (a type of review that Zencore! seems to evoke from its reviewers) are on this TLO page (by Yellowish Haze and by Calenture):
http://www.ligotti.net/showthread.php?t=1195

And my own 'On the Hoof' review (!) of Thomas Ligotti's Conspiracy Against The Human Race here:
http://www.ligotti.net/showthread.php?t=1159

Anyone else interested in doing a 'rite of review' with Zencore! ?
A few review copies available. It'll be posted to you after the UK postal strike is finished!

Anyone got any other examples of 'rites of review'??
A Ligotti-like literary propensity would seem to lend itself to this ritual exposure to texts and textures.

Another 'rite of review' between Reader and Zencore where I think the struggle is literally audible:

This is a formal review of ZENCORE! in a formal quarterly:
http://www.silveragebooks.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/mag/tqf/issues/TQF19.pdf
It is also a good example of a 'rite of review' as I earlier defined as a 'struggle' or 'confessional' review that Zencore seems to encourage.
It includes these words;
"I am forced to admit I have lost it (probably in the pub), and only got about a third of the way through reading it."
