A vibrant imagination, a striking use of metaphor and symbol, and a sure grasp of form and nuance-all these elements make this book a memorable venture into cosmic terror.”-S. T. Joshi
“Maxwell Ian Gold’s work marries the hot-house decadence of Clark Ashton Smith with the visionary queer sensibility of Jean Genet and David Wojanrowicz. These word-drunk pieces simmer with a fever-dream intensity.”—Craig Laurance Gidney, author of A Spectral Hue.
Enter a world of desolate imagination, rhizomatic beauty, and ruined cities.
Oblivion in Flux, the debut prose poetry collection of Maxwell I. Gold, takes the reader on a trip along demented railways and past rhizomatic tubular dreamscapes, to find themselves transported to plastic cities where the Cyber Gods sit on thrones of ivory and bone.
With over 50 poems in this volume, you’ll discover artifacts and forgotten places, ruins and dark secrets. Oblivion in Flux intertwines prosaic story-telling and poetic visions, to tell the narrative of the Cyber Gods and those who have met them.
The book features original poems and reprints as well as a brand-new collaborative prose poem written by the author and Bram Stoker Award winner and SFPA Grandmaster, Linda D. Addison.
