‘Now Jesus himself had pointed out that a prophet has no honour in his own country’ (John 4:44)
Jim Meirose's work has appeared in numerous venues, including Le Scat Noir, Offbeat/Quirky (Journal of Exp. Fiction pub,), Permafrost, North Atlantic Review, Witness, and Kairos Literary Magazine.
New in 2018 will be:
"Understanding Franklin Thompson" novel: JEF Publications
- Comment from Jane Rosenberg LaForge, poet and author of “An Unsuitable Princess” and “The Hawkman: A Fairy Tale of the Great War.”, re "Understanding Franklin Thompson": "To read only one of Jim Meirose’s novels is to miss out on the scope and depth of his surreal vision. But UNDERSTANDING FRANKLIN THOMPSON is a great place to start."
And in 2019:
"Le Overgivers au Club de la Résurrection" novel: Black Scat Books
-Comment from Norman Conquest, Editor, Black Scat Books, re "Le Overgivers au Club de la Resurrection": A magician’s hand is quicker than the eye, and the same is true of Meirose’s fiction. It’s experimental magic and I haven’t a clue how he does it. This novel will leave you mesmerized.”
-Comment from Rosemarie Tantra Bensko, author of the The Agents of the Nevermind psychological suspense series, and gold medal winning novelist, re "Le Overgivers...": In this funereal narrative, Meirose's prose pulses with life, infusing you with intensity of each moment arising surprised. The robust words leap for joy out of the coffin. There really are no limits. There is no end of worlds sentence to sentence with a narrator as liberated as this one, free to obsessively imagine. I laughed out loud throughout the novel. I'm reminded of falling in love with Tom Robbins writing with similar boldly whimsical juxtapositions."

And, possibly these also:
"The room’s gone down to a disappearing dot, no one can look at it no shut your eyes now; it shouts in a way that says don’t dare disobey, clamping down the failed monster-man’s eyes quite mercifully, so quick he had not time to believe he saw death coming; years sped by great highways plunged under gone behind..."
