Well that was some mighty fine false advertising it says on the cover that Nothing is Strange that is complete hooey Everything in this book is strange I really need to start reading the back of books before I start them just to give myself a bit of warning for what I'm getting myself into The stories are wonderful some of the most bizarre things I've ever read I've no idea what kind of mad man Mike Russell is but he has to be pretty crazy to come up with these stories Each story starts off with a brief introduction each time I had the narrator's voice from the twilight zone reading it in my head in fact each of these stories would be perfect as episodes There is a uirky humour throughout that had me chuckling a fair bit I can't really explain any of the stories as they are too surreal to shorten down into a review here are some amazing highlights A man criesThere is a right handThere is a beardInvisible beesBalls of fireAnd scones yes you heard me sconesEverybody give this book a go you won't regret it

The zone of the strangeO give me a home where the curious roamWhere the odd and the puzzling playYou are about to enter the remarkable world of Mike Russell's Nothing is Strange a collection of twenty bizarre snappers where nothing can be anything and strange is as strange as strange can be Reading these brief tales I was reluctant to underline any of the passages since I had the distinct impression the British author's deeper levels of meaning were to be found in the blank spaces between the lines Moreover I took my time with the book since reading each tale was like swallowing a delectable Alice in Wonderland pill Much wiser to read one or two or three tales a day so the images and happenings contained therein are given the needed time to work their magic Oh yes each time I read the first line of a Mike Russell mind blaster I was opening the door onto a private garden where all varieties of exotic flowers bloom a fountain of tiny white light erupts from a small hole on the top of a man's head; there's an enormous concrete building in the shape of a sun; a fifteen year old with a bald pointed head gets a tattoo on the middle of his forehead that's the first letter of his nickname; two lovers have sex in a shopping mall to prove their love to the world Such is the nature of an absurdist prose miniature where our habitual and conventional world of what passes for normality is abandoned in favor of a morphed logic flowing into the surreal and fantastic Among the practitioners of this uniue form we have such authors as Russell Edson Daniil Kharms Barry Yourgrau Peter Cherches and we have Mike Russell I encourage you to pick up Nothing is Strange and treat yourself to some serious strangeness And speaking of strange I'll let Mike Russell have the last word via a direct uote from his book My life appeared strange because it was one way and not another Only if it had been every possibility at once would it have not appeared strange And that is what I am now Every possibility at once And nothing is strangeBritish author Mike Russell born 1973

Nothing Is StrangeOf Mike Russell so put on your top hat open your third eye and enjoy Nothing Is Stran. Nothing is Strange is an illicit dairy based love affair between synthetic dreams and the sensors and nerves of your eyes It is nutritious but decadent written chocolateUnfortunately it isn’t possible to concentrate paper and idea into a human for this would be the most intriguing one to chat with But being your typical homunculus it would probably be flawed somewhere vital and mope about mourning its own existence for always and wouldn’t want to chat at all Nothing is perfect as a short story collection could be It molds the shapes which only exist in the act of sleep and solidifies them into a theatre of little masterpieces Nothing is hypnotic humorous horrifying and every other H word that we spit out in haste when we can’t really describe what we feel It’s truly neapolitan and not only because one of its stories harbors a serious ice cream fetishI stubbornly straddled the fence on this book for awhile even though it kept popping up and the guilt for that is real If you’re not sure just try a small bite It pretty much becomes a vortex after that and good luck running free from itMy particular favourites were “Dunce” “Escape From the Butcher’s Shop” “The Living Crown” “Extraordinary Elsie” and “Stan and Stan” Interestingly these all stand out because they challenge the innate fatalism of people One is not always meant to be what it seems they will at birth even if everyone they meet says otherwise Not when there is a whole world waiting out there whose mere touch can change anything More novelties and reviews on my blog Go crazy
