Tanzer is developing a further depth to his writing with each work. Repetition Patterns gets mud luscious'd and likes it. A lot.

Big thanks to J.A. Tyler and the crew at mud luscious for their very kind review of Repetition Patterns in the new edition of this most excellent of literary zines. We are much appreciative and have even posted a snippet below for your viewing pleasure. Please have at it, and J.A., drinks are on us for sure when next we cross paths.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but weren't these stories written before either of your novels? In which case, wouldn't that mean your writing is regressing? Just wondering.

I think as 'revised' versions of these stories, 'developing' is still right, though I laughed my ass off at 'regressing'. hilarious p.

Our marketing guy has told us to call it progression by regression.

Look on the bright side - given the high quality of your first two novels, if you're truly regressing, those one-page, written-in-crayon stories about Jenny the Giraffe and Bobby the Babboon that you wrote in second grade might just win you the Pulitzer.

That's what we're hoping, which is why we are especially excited about Random House showing so much interest in the doodling we did during our bris.
