Elephant Man: “Come for the art, stay for the derangement”

What they’re saying of Elephant Man , Greg Houston’s latest:

“Come for the art, stay for the derangement, and release most notions of “plotting.”

SF Site

“Cheerfully grotesque. Has its sweetly offensive moments.”

Bill Sherman, Blogcritics and picked up by the Seattle Post Intelligencer.

And this one just in!

“I can see it now: “I am not an animal! I am a superhero!”

You’d think turning John Merrick — aka the severely deformed, so-called Elephant Man — into a comic-book character would be tasteless. And in Greg Houston’s ELEPHANT MAN, it certainly is. But it’s also fairly hilarious, so consider some slack cut.”
