Begin with what seems the end of things--how Conall Weaver lifts a gun to his head. And now dive backward into the labyrinthine worlds of home, where Conall is the center, into the maze of love, where Conall seeks and strives with his soul-mate, and into the maze of imagination, with its population of weapon-wielding heroes and local-color Texans...and then on, into the maze of childhood, where time seems illusion and all the threads and stories start. Red for the blood of frontiersmen and Indians, Conall thought, red for the blood of proven heroes and mother, the martyr of Cross Plains. Maze for the looping coils of a snake that ended in a rattle that shook out revolutionary warning: don t tread on me! Maze for veins of blood. Maze for family. In Conall Weaver, the mundane world and the wonders of the imagination collide and shoot out sparks. Inspired by the life of pulp writer Robert E. Howard, MAZE OF BLOOD explores the roots of story and the compulsions and conflicts of the heart in a Southern landscape.

From the Back Cover:

"Maze of Blood is a haunting tale, but one so beautifully crafted by Youmans, unraveling in short chapters like prose poems constructed from spare dialogue, the dusty Texas landscape, a sudden flash of vibrant nature, and the sweep of a starlight sky... A haunting tale of dark obsessions and transcendent creative fire, rendered brilliantly in Youmans' richly poetic prose." --Midori Snyder, award-winning author

About the Author:

Author of fourteen books, Marly Youmans has been called the best-kept secret among contemporary American writers (Books & Culture). Her recent novels are GLIMMERGLASS ("resonant, beautiful"--Margo Lanagan) and A DEATH AT THE WHITE CAMELLIA ORPHANAGE ("controlled lyrical passion...the finest, and the truest period novel I've read in years"--Lucius Shepard). Recent poetry books include a long narrative, THALIAD ("mesmerizing...a work of genius"--Lee Smith), and two collections, THE FOLIATE HEAD and THE THRONE OF PSYCHE.
