JIM MEIROSE - NEW FICTION
"A tiny man. Leading many more other tinier men. The number of tiny men in the line only bounded by the rate of each one’s diminishment!"
You don't call a mechanic a "wrencher" or a surgeon a "cutter", so - don't call me a "writer" please. It's stupid and offensive.

Currently Available Novels by Jim Meirose:
No and Maybe - Maybe and No (Pski's Porch): "...based on mythology drawn from Frazier’s 'The Golden Bough', regarding the belief of certain tribes that each human being is inhabited by from one to four souls. These souls leave the body when their humans fall asleep, and enter the waking world as beings looking and behaving like normal people."
Tod Davies, editorial director, Exterminating Angel Press: "No and Maybe...is not only a cultural pushback, born of James Joyce via Philip K. Dick, with a nod to Leonard Cohen, but it's also very funny."
Le Overgivers au Club de la Résurrection (Mannequin Haus):"Disillusioned Funeral Home proprietors Jamed and Wendy Davis join the Club de la Résurrection, whose purpose is to research and develop, over the next twenty years, the necessary technology to render its investors/members immortal and provide them new lives."
George Salis, Author and Editor, The Collidescope: "...superbly accomplished novel (Le Overgivers au Club de la Résurrection) by an extraordinary talent."
Understanding Franklin Thompson (JEF Books): "Middle-aged bachelor Franklin Thompson and his widowed Mother Audrey live together in a quiet small town. But their lives are periodically marred by the repeated attacks of a horrid mental disorder which they share..."
Paul John Adams, Editor, Optional Books: "This a profoundly original novel. It is unsettling, it is anxiety ridden, and it is also quite humorous."
Sunday Dinner with Father Dwyer (Optional Books): "Father Dwyer, host of a cooking show for containership crews, accompanies us on a physical journey from here to there that turns into a metaphysical journey as well."
Warwick Newnham, Contributing Editor, Open: Journal of Arts & Letters: "Like Ballard and Burroughs, Meirose works in the realm of literature as pure consciousness: a tour de force of post-modernist philosophy as writing."
Comments on Jim Meirose's Work:
Rudy Johnson, Editor, Misery Tourism:
"This piece is probably one of the most vivid depictions of suffering I’ve seen submitted to us."
"...superbly accomplished novel (Le Overgivers au Club de la Résurrection) ...will surely be one of the best novels you read this year."
Tom Ball, Senior Editor, Fleas on the Dog.
"Meirose is a trickster stylist and while you might call him ‘Joycean’ his lyric signature is lighter and a little more playful than the author of ‘Ulysses’. His extraordinary word play is like listening to a dialect you don’t quite understand but from which you can nevertheless glean meaning."
Norman Conquest, Editor, Black Scat Books:
Rosemarie Tantra Bensko, author of The Agents of the Nevermind psychological suspense series, and gold medal winning novelist:
"Meirose's prose pulses with life, infusing you with intensity of each moment arising surprised. "
"Jim Meirose is a writer of distinctive voice and vision"
"To read only one of Jim Meirose’s novels is to miss out on the scope and depth of his surreal vision"
