      Her first book, The Orange Eats Creeps was an instant cult classic upon its release in Steve Erickson (Introduction) is the author of eight novels: Days Between Stations (), Rubicon Beach (), Tours of the Black Clock (), Arc d'X (), Amnesiascope (), The Sea Came in at Midnight (), Our Ecstatic Days () and. Amnesiascope, in some ways literally but in more ways figuratively, picks up with that dead Erickson character in Arc d'X. The narrator of Amnesiascope is at ground zero emotionally and psychologically and creatively and the only thing that's keeping him going is his own sensuality. And as a result, this book wound up the most personal of all.

A washed-up novelist navigates the dreamscape of a cataclysm-ravaged Los Angeles. In the apocalyptic Los Angeles of Amnesiascope, time zones multiply freely, spectral figures roam the streets, and rings of fire separate the city from the rest of the frecklesandhoney.com narrator, a former novelist, lives in a hotel and writes film criticism for a newspaper whose offices are located in a bombed-out frecklesandhoney.com: Open Road Media.

      Fired from his job covering the presidential campaign for Rolling Stone, novelist Erickson (Amnesiascope, , etc.) decides to stay on the candidates' trail and comes to some sobering conclusions about our country and its political legacy. Erickson attacks left, right, and center with equal abandon. Part rant and part serious analysis, often hysterically funny, American Nomad argues in. Strip clubs, sexual slavery, Paris dreams, New York horror and California misery catastrophically define and entrap the troubled margin-dwellers inhabiting this penetrating dream vision of the post-nu.
