High words for "This New & Poisonous Air"

Adam McOmber, BOA author. WBEZ 91.5 featured a review of Adam McOmber's short story collection, This New & Poisonous Air.  The review speaks highly of McOmber's work and his ability to blend "myths, fairy tales, and fables" into beautiful and intriguing stories.  McOmber uses a varied palette of time and history to create fresh and innovative characters, events, and pictures. These "intricate and provocative stories" are at once distinct and yet unified in their "timeless" quality.  McOmber has succeeded in creating a collection that is "laced with sorrow and mystery, beauty and compassion, insight and protest."  Further, "This New & Poisonous Air is exquisitely crafted, daringly inventive and keenly haunting."
