 "I had great fun reading Richard Martin’s stories. They’re so relentlessly perverse, so acridly playful. They’re driven by a remorselessly exact self-consciousness that refuses to accept the limits of its own powers of expression, a kind of anti-textuality that keeps pulling the rug out from under itself."
--Stephen-Paul Martin

"Richard Martin’s freewheeling stories create their own reality."
--Vernon Frazer
