Flytrap Reviewed

In the July issue of Locus, which just came out this past week, Nick Gevers reviews Flytrap 2 quite favorably. Here's the relevant bit:

Edited by Heather Shaw and Locusís own Tim Pratt, Flytrap is fast emerging as one of the very best small press fiction publications, a rival to Lady Churchillís Rosebud Wristlet and Christopher Roweís Say.... Issue 2, dated May 2004, is a cornucopia of surreal wonders, all very well written indeed. The lead entry, Rudi Dornemannís "The Labyrinth Tourist", is a magnificent sortie into a city of eternal paradox, where a visitor and his tattooed guide confront both the logic of illogic and their complementary aspirations. Dornemann is like some new avatar of Lewis Carroll, a writer to watch. David Molesís "The Ideas" and "Kankís Last Breath" by Michael Canfield are deftly conceived allegories of obsession and inspiration; Sarah Prineasís "The Lambton Worm" is a dazzling expansion and revision of a medieval English ballad; and Jenn Reeseís "Born of Bones" is an impressive meditation on the power of the dead to blight the existence of the living. With other striking tales and a deal of fine fantastic poetry, Flytrap is an attractive showcase for new talent in weird fiction.
