Here’s an excerpt from Gabino Iglesias’s review:
Robert Vaughan’s Addicts & Basements places the reader on shaky ground from the first page and relentlessly delivers short blasts of weird, dark, surprising, funny, and sad writing in order to keep her there. The collection, which dances between poetry, short fiction, and whatever lies in between those two, masterfully pulls strangeness out of ordinary things and offers a glimpse into the bizarre behaviors humans are capable of. From a woman mailing her pubic hair to her ex to a mysterious something that may or may not be hiding in a basement laundry room, the people, situations, and places in Vaughan’s work walk a fine line between normalcy and quiet chaos.
