My Review Let It Bleed is the debut novel by author S.L. Schmitz, and a truly unique one.  Set in the 1980’s underground punk scene in Middle America, this story is not for the casual reader.  Much of it is written in a very stream of consciousness way.  The story is at times dark and very […]

A Tangled Web is the first novella in the book and is the story of the Greek god Hades and his bride Persephone.  The usual tale is that Hades essentially kidnaps Persephone, […]
