New from Anxiety Press: Quasi
Anxiety Press is pleased to announce the release of: Quasi by Wilson Koewing
"I don't know if Koewing is real or an entity that shows up at the campfire after three glasses of bourbon. But either way, his stories will move inside of you like air and water."
- Scott Laudati
“Koewing paints in sunset shades of nostalgia. What could have been is always right there under the surface of what was. It’s a feeling that will escort you through this collection, from his childhood in rural South Carolina to the realm of Quasi, where the uncanny mingles with the possibility of a reimagined past.”
- Greg Tebbano
“QUASI is a powerful dance between startling reality and a distant and dreamy otherworld. Wilson Koewing can take your head off with one piece, break your heart with the next, all the while offering characters both broken beyond repair and, in subtle contrast, strong and good- hearted. Quasi is a book of black and white in some ways, but in the end, Koewing is a rainbow against a dark sky. Completely unique in the world.”
- Sheldon Lee Compton
"Wilson is a wordsmith, no question. His fearlessness and blood and guts approach to writing makes these stories sing, cry and linger long after they have been read...a writer to watch out for and one I will follow."
- Kevin Richard White
