Sampler reinvigorates for me Thomas Kuhn’s now glossed notion of the paradigm shift.

Michael Martone (author, Four for a Quarter)

Sampler has, among other talents, the comic sensibilities of Kurt Vonnnegut and the poet’s heart of Icelandic writer Sjon.

Carleigh Baker (author, Bad Endings)

a distinct voice and style

Thea Bowering (author, Love at Last Sight)

an imagination cut loose from the needs of verisimilitude

Timothy Iles  (author, Abe Kobo: An Exploration)

Sampler tells an interesting story, and has an eye for… detail and the surrealistic that echoes Yoko Tawada: providing the unexpected when there should only be one possible outcome.
