I'm always gratified when my "older" books get reviewed. Books deserve better than being categorized in "recent" vs. non-recent.  Thanks to Aileen Ibardaloza-Casinetto who apparently inaugurated her Goodreads Reviews with a review of my collected novels, SILK EGG!  She calls me an architect of pyramids -- why not?  Here's an excerpt of the review:
Muted as they are, these images rouse the tenderest of sentiments over the impermanence of structures.  That is to say, the perception of impermanence as directed by experience (or is it the other way around?). Architectural paradoxes aside, the significance of these novels is to present a new way of texturizing orthographical symbols and their meanings using as few combinations as possible. As Tabios puts it, "Look where the window view finally stops…" and/or see the world with words. That is again to say, dare to perceive, represent, truthfully.
