26Lies on the Overlooked Book List at Locus.

Jeff VanderMeer has written a list of 12 Overlooked Books in 2006, and 26Lies is there:

#6 - Twenty-Six Lies/One Truth by Ben Peek (Wheatland Press, $14.95, large-sized trade paper, 152 pages)

Ben Peek is a writer I fully expect to blunder out into the scene like a run-away brontosaurus one of these days. He has titanic talent generally leashed to micro-detail projects when his true canvas is probably something much wider and deeper. Twenty-Six Lies/One Truth is a gently experimental text that uses a glossary of terms from A to Z to create vignettes, one-liners, and other supports for loosely connected narratives. Some are funny, some are most definitely not funny. All are lively and deserve your attention.

--Amazon and Wheatland Press.

The whole list is here and you should read it.
