A comment on genre and latent form as a type of minimalist poetry
Feeling out the traditions of world-building, invented languages, and fictional histories of those poet-philologists who crafted much of our register of fantasy and folk horror (Sturluson, Tolkien, Brothers Krofft & Grimm), Ashenfolk re-collects a legendarium of dingy elves, midnight moves, minor gods, and twilight people into a boogie man box-set of nightborn bric-a-brac. Mosconi borrows a light from Bradbury’s fireman to enkindle a superfan assemblage of lexical robble-robble and mythopoeic proto-punk, all loose cover for the myriad blazes a book fails to contain. – Andrew Maxwell
