When you have the face of any other, you’re thrilled to see that others acknowledge your existence despite being invisible. Verbicide lists your book as one of the best of 2014 and you wonder about the author, Gabino Iglesias, the one that saw you on the street corner when most didn’t. This is what he had to say about you:
Seidlinger is that guy exploring the possibilities offered by experimental fiction and actually producing books worth reading out of that adventure. With font size, a voice that invades others, and using blank space in a way that communicates something, this novel was the most interesting look at identity anyone could have read this year.
When you have the face of any other, you offer up the link, hoping that others will check out every book on the list.
What a list–comprehensive, well-representative of indie/small press, and full of titles that elegantly cross the line of what we call “contemporary.” I’m excited to see that Cooper included “The Fun We’ve Had” on the list. There is no better honor than being recognized by one of the best literary citizens of all time. \m/ Dennis Cooper \m/.

Now this was a surprise. Alongside a number of excellent indie/small press titles, The Fun We’ve Had was listed by Liberty Hardy in her Great Big Guide to Indie 2014. Got to say, Liberty did her homework. Though you’ll think I’m biased because I’m included in the list, I really do think that this is one of the more fleshed out and representative year-end lists of 2014 (so far).
