YOU PROBABLY HAVEN’T READ. There is just way too much fiction out there.
Not just too much of it at the Barn: too much of it in existence. And the indiscriminate
sludge-chute of American publishing obscures some really good authors, like Jonis Agee, whose novels SWEET EYES and STRANGE ANGELS, both set in the American

manage to avoid being either one of those teacup-and-potpourri “village” novels English
authors write in their sleep or one of those baths of magnolia surrealism and baroque hoo-
