Voices From The Fictionary

I received this zine without any provocation (and I like that); David Moscovich is a writer in the “flash fiction” school, which I must admit I’m not too familiar with. “Voices From The Fictionary” is a collection of a number of pieces of prose. These pieces tell a story in an incredibly short period of time (topping out at about three paragraphs of text), while still having a sense of poetic beauty attached to them. Moscovich is incredibly talented at coming forth with pieces detailing a range of different activities and creating these stories with a number of different tones. Whether it is the “government censored” approach that ey takes during “Was The Proof We Needed” or a tone reminiscent of “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” during “Voice Dirt-Teen”, individuals will never be able to pin down exactly where Moscovich will take readers during eir next work. There are no pictures, no drawings, no changes in the font used during these works – it is purely up to Moscovich’s style to set the tone and tell the story in each piece. It is in this duty that Moscovich shines the brightest; while the price may be a little on the high side for individuals used to spending $1 or $2 on a zine on this size, the cost becomes much less of an issue when individuals sit down and read Moscovich’s impressive tangents. I’m notoriously stingy and even I want to pick up Moscovich’s other works, “That Rare Amalgamation of Blue Hair…” and “Thirty-Three Convoluted Solutions…”. Email Moscovich and arrange to receive a copy of this chapbook.
