Tobacco-Stained Mountain Goat review by Elizabeth A. White

“With one foot planted firmly in a futuristic world where Seekers routinely undergo Matrix-like virtual reality “tests” to ensure they are still in the fold and capable of carrying out company orders, TSMG manages to simultaneously have its other foot rooted in an authentic, throwback, hardboiled detective vibe.

Interview with Andrez Bergen @ Tribute Books

Tobacco-Stained Mountain Goat review @ Verbicide

“And then the girl from the Activities was standing before me. You remember her, the one from my recurring dream. The one I murdered, even if I don’t exactly remember the details. She stood before me, a hole the size of a football cut into her stomach, her hands cradling her innards.”

Those are the kind of stark descriptions of the grotesque and fantastic that litter Andrez Bergen’s debut novel. Tobacco-Stained Mountain Goat is a post-apocalyptic, sci-fi noir caper that comes on quick and relentless, and doesn’t quit until the last words. Read more…

ASP Audio Interview with the Dead Robot Society!

In case you haven’t noticed, the robots have slowly been joining forces over the course of the last few years. What were once simply lonely machines subjugated to a life of assembling toys for our pleasure have finally united under the banner of the Dead Robot Society, where they discuss writing, philosophy, literature, and the future of publishing. Their army is under construction (fortunately for us, ‘some assembly required’ was a bit of an understatement) and their world dominance will be forthcoming. Read more…
