Mellick's novella is written in the same minimalist style as Razor Wire Pubic Hair. Like that book, it reads like he took a lot of time to craft each sentence. But in the introduction, he says that he doesn't remember writing the book. The reason why I prefer this one is because it doesn't contain so much sex and violence that it begins to feel repetitive to me. Now I like that sort of thing, but scattered around here and there rather than on every page.
Which brings me to Kadrey's novella, Angel Scene. That's exactly why I didn't care for it. Too much repetition and not much of anything else.
Regardless, Teeth and Tongue Landscape is so wonderful that I'm still going to give the book five stars. Its surreal world is so well-conceived that I could nearly taste the flavor of its meat. Everybody should visit there for an afternoon.
