Little Rock author/fabulist Kevin Brockmeier gets a shout-out in a new article in The Atlantic that discusses the 21st century, genre-bending shift in “serious fiction” from strict realism to literature-quality novels that deal with everything from time travel to zombie plagues.

Speaking of time travel, while I was searching our archives, I ran across our 2006 review of Brockmeier’s excellent and thoroughly-mystical novel “A Brief History of the Dead.” I totally need to read that again.
