One thought on “Joe Pulver

  1. FROM MY REVIEW OF A SEASON IN CARCOSA:

    Not Enough Hope: {for a king sorely missed, KEW} by Joseph S. Pulver, Sr.
    “How hard would it have been to navigate thirty steps and talk for a few minutes?”…. So even beyond those 20 Padgettian steps toward their optimum two-way ventriloquising between death and life, dream and non-dream, and between Price’s unreal unreal and real unreal…as I read, for the first but not the last time, Pulver’s theme and variations upon Chambers work – watching and listening to KEW as the KEY of KiY as well as its retrocausal sigil knot.
    I shall continue reading and rereading this Pulver and receiving more and more from it, as I shall reread KEW’s work, too, to enable those steps back and forth to be completed before I do truly end up on that mall with Elvis eating anchovies – and that was a great surprise and honour to me tonight to suddenly see that reference in the Pulver. Thanks, Joe.
    But, of course, that personal reference is trivial when compared to this multi-resonating story as a whole…and to a king’s sad death and the Sign many saw in his face at that time.

    A momentous night for me concerning those great ones who have sadly departed, because I have realised just now that I inadvertently and inexcusably missed out Joel Lane’s Carcosa story “My Voice Is Dead” when earlier reading and reviewing these two books’ stories in my gratuitously prescribed alphabetical-by-author’s-surname order (gratuitous other than as a preternatural experiment in dreamcatching?)
    Perhaps it was meant to be (but that’s still no excuse) – and I shall leave reading “My Voice Is Dead” till the very end of this review. The Last Ventriloquism.

    So glad you enjoyed it, Des. Always hoped when you came upon it, you wouldn’t want me dead. Also, always thought if any writer I admire was Carcosan through and through, it was you, so I had to drop you into one of my tales.

    BEST!

    Joe
