The Resurrectionist is still genius. E.B. Hudspeth: you hit a homerun with this one; it is your magnum opus.
I almost forgot about The Lost Work of Dr. Spencer Black until a few weeks ago, when I noticed I had liked it on Facebook. Right away I bought my own copy, then re-read it as soon as it came.
"You balance a stick on the backs of your hands just along the knuckles while you play.... however, the stick will never fall to the floor, bravo! When I perform, the stick falls, then a symphony flows from me."
Dammit! I had to get up and breathe on that one. Dr. Spencer Black loved himself, and Hudspeth gives him a prose that's both literary and lyrical.
I highly recommend the hardcover. "The Codex Extinct Animalia" within is a collector's item.
