The Information Crusher

John Colasacco

ISBN  978-1-941550-47-2         $15.00        130 pages

The Information Crusher is a crushing novella that's not only haunting: it's haunted. You leave it and it lurks nearby. It follows you. It is still following me. I don't want it to stop.

     Ashley Farmer, author of Beside Myself and The Pharmacist

 

John Colasacco owns a marvelous probing voice; his writing is always inviting and surprising–a multiplicity of vivid tones, as if language consists of colors primed for revelation.

    Michael Burkard, author of Lucky Coat Anywhere and Envelope of Night

 

John Colasacco is equal parts savant, madman, and humanist. The fiction he writes for the page may very well be the biographies of individuals from a parallel universe. Colasacco is channeling something utterly unique and it would be foolish of you not heed his words. We'll all be living in his universe in no time.

     Michael J Seidlinger, author of The Strangest and The Fun We've Had
