It’s nice to report that Extraordinary Renditions got a terrific review in the new issue of Pleiades, one of the cooler lit mags around. Here’s an excerpt:

“[Ervin’s] prose is elegant and his complex lyrical imagery is rendered with clarity. . . . Ervin’s intersecting novellas give us fully realized characters, experiencing dramatically different renditions of the same time and place—they sift through the ordinary in order to present us the extraordinary. This collection is the announcement of a talent to watch.”
