    1. To open this book by Youmans is like jumping into another world,and moving from cloud to cloud with a vapor and flavor inside so unique while riding on a breeze to places unknown yet somehow familiar in one's mind enough to recall some of it.Youman's novels seem to follow no conventional plotting of story twists or planned conflict, yet they still evoke some type of shared humanity that can be a bit weird and also feel comforting to her reader. Her carefully chosen words and formed sentences str [...]



    2. Conall Weaver is a writer, a weaver of tales. He authors pulp novels filled with Celtic warriors, Mongol hordes and fabulous adventurers and swordsmen. Those things are in short supply in Cross Plains, Texas, where Conall lives with his invalid mother, who is dying of tuberculosis, and his father, the local physician.What Cross Plains has plenty of is cowboys, cactus, dust and heat. “What did you need of hell when you had Texas?” Conall wonders rhetorically.No one in Cross Plains really unde [...]


    3. MAZE OF BLOODBy Marly Youmans(Macon, Georgia, 2015, Mercer University Press.)MAZE OF BLOOD, by Marly Youmans, is a book to be savored. It is a book that digs deep, with every word of the spare and exquisite prose carrying level upon level of meaning. It is a book that encourages, even requires, both thought and feeling in every line. Though it will capture the reader immediately and never let go, it’s not a book to be taken lightly. MAZE OF BLOOD is a book to read over and over again.As she di [...]


    4. Finding a splendid pearl in an oyster while combing the beach. Uncorking a bottle of wine, then being stunned by the enticing aroma and promise-fulfilling flavor. That's what turning the pages of this book written by Marly Youmans was like for me.The yarn she weaves is arresting. Once I finished the first chapter, I had to close the book for a bit and simply lie there, relishing the prospect of the journey that lay ahead. Indeed, there were parts of the story told with words so beautifully writt [...]


    5. Marly Youmans is a lyrical writer -- a sort of Michael Ondaatje of the Deep South, really. Readers who dig the latter should, I would think, dig her.Conall Weaver, her fictional portrait of pulp master Robert E. Howard, contains multitudes -- many more than most people do. Her compassionate excavation of his tumultuous inner life makes for a surprisingly welcome immersive experience. You've gotta be in the mood for it, though. Were I in another time and place, I'd likely rate this a "five out of [...]
