An Insupportable Light is the original Stinz novel, featuring Donna Barr's half-horse hero back when she thought of him as having two legs instead of four. The story begins at the end of one war,... More > with the hope of peace. Then one small incident after another, building and combining like pebbles tossed down a slope, become an avalanche of misunderstandings, broken hearts, fury and revenge. It's about how wars start: nobody wants them, nobody can see them coming and nobody can stop them. “This is not so much a story about a war as it is a portrait of human folly at its most resplendent. It is as poignant and relevant today as it was when humanity first formed civilizations; as it will be so long as we exist.” -- Carlos F. Chancellor, Tales from the Cold; The Comic Art of the Northwest.< Less

Henning Asbach is an SS officer assigned to investigate a series of grave robberies in the backwater province called The Share. But the assignment won’t be as easy as he imagined, as the... More > close-mouthed inhabitants of the Share seem to be hiding an even more terrible secret. Ringcat is both touching and horrific, a tale of a Third Reich that never was.

“Permanent Party is – what? A Vietnam-era W.A.C.’s Catch-22? A roman-à-clef? A murder mystery? A poetic memoir? Barr’s ear for dialogue is flawless, her... More > descriptions of human physiognomy hilarious. The dramatic rhythm is sporadic and punctuated, deliberately defying the breathless crescendi of fiction with the unresolved panics and careless lulls of real life in a gigantic bureaucracy. Small, throwaway bits of telling detail -- peeling paint chips, a dog’s sneeze on being patted, the smell of chicken frying -- give the entire book a sensuous texture. The characters in this woman’s Army are so steeped in weirdness they wouldn’t have been out of place in my college dorm (and we were the campus hippies).” -- E.J. Barnes, Tales Of The Ling Master< Less

64 full-color pages. Based on the long-running drawn-book series, The Desert Peach. "There’s nothing innocent in Pithed. It is a nihilistic nightmare, a bad LSD-trip into human failure,... More > guilt and resignation. The future, along with (the Desert Peach)Pfirisch’s descendents, is portrayed as a climax of darkness and senselessness. A place with a destroyed nature, where pure air is dealt like drugs are today and where babies are sharp-toothed monsters. Evolution’s response to centuries-long child-abuse! The Peach finds himself as a terrifying zombie in a bizarre hell. The Peach a doomed soul - who would have guessed? A self-made hell, because Pfirsich couldn’t forgive himself for having once called the Gypsies 'those people.' And yes, Hell probably is always self-made. A place of one’s own unforgiveness." -- Diana Sasse, "Tales of The Antique Whitehouse."< Less
