Dario Rivarossa, Artist and Translator, Reviews The Bottomless Bottle of Beer
Another five-star review of my novella, The Bottomless Bottle of Beer, has appeared on Amazon:
"In the beginning there was the Word," and rarely has the Word found such a captive fan as Prof. Horace Jeffery Hodges: a keen reader of both holy and horror texts, and a writer who weighs every term. Thank God, in an era like this in which words are sold in bulk! The novel -- in this version, illustrated by the well-known Surrealist and comic artist Terrance Lindall -- reinterprets the fundamental myth of Man's Fall on the basis of the Bible and western literature in what may look like a parody but, on closer inspection, is a refined tribute. Hodges is a king of puns, and his pun-theism provides here a brilliant new episode in a literary Fantasy-Christian tradition that includes Milton, Blake, Tolkien, and CS Lewis.I suppose I must again offer full disclosure. Dario Rivarossa, another friend of mine, posted this kind review, but I do believe he means what he writes and isn't just being nice because we're friends.
Incidentally, if I'm king of puns, Dario is the emperor! He's also an artist, a translator, and an all-around Renaissance man . . .
