By Clayton Smith
Reviewed by Jason Pettus
Although I don't want to give the impression that Clayton Smith's Anomaly Flats is bad, because it's not, it's also a fact that I simply don't have a lot to say about it -- it's essentially Welcome to Night Vale but not as funny and not written quite as well, a bizarro tale with supernatural elements that I have to confess I grew tired of kind of quickly. A decent read for those who burn through a lot of these kinds of books, it can pretty easily be skipped by those who don't.
