Echoes The Last Centurion

Advance praise for Echoes:

"The starkly bare landscape of western Nevada, in Roger Arthur Smith’s telling, harbors some remarkable secrets—the oldest man alive, a child who will never age, and the sweetest, most charming crow in all of American literature. Smith fluently weaves such elements into an engrossing narrative in which readers will be happy to be swept up." —John Daniel, author of Gifted and Rogue River Journal


"With his genre-bending debut, Echoes, Roger Arthur Smith examines the chiaroscuro of human nature in a compelling tale that melds the supernatural with old-fashioned noir. The result is an unsettling but captivating story that challenges our assumptions about innocence and evil and, ultimately, how the echoes of our actions reverberate throughout our lives." —Debra Ginsberg, author of The Grift and The Neighbors are Watching

Advance Praise for The Last Centurion:

“Surrealistic tones emphasize heavy questions of empire-building and cultural subsumption in this thoughtful
archaeology novel.” —Foreword Reviews

“Love, war, the dreams and follies of empire—The Last Centurion‘s got it all. Bernard Schopen writes with style and gravitas. Readers will savor this book.” —Matt Gallagher, author of Youngblood

"Schopen’s The Last Centurion is a timely and gripping reflection of the complexities our untidy world today. But in its telling, it also shows that human tensions—old vs. new, barbarian vs. civilized, sacred vs. profane—are timeless. The Last Centurion may be Schopen’s best work yet.”—Caleb S. Cage, Author, Desert Mementos: Stories of Iraq and Nevada
