Art Magnified

Gold, Golden

The Walls

Go. Stand over there. Face the wall. No, I'm not punishing you. It's for your own good. Local artist David Leigh is opening a new exhibit of his sometimes funny, sometimes just plain weird drawings this week at the Walls Gallery. As in past Walls exhibits, Leigh seeks to exploit the space itself in an effort to reveal his drawings to maximum effect. Gold, Golden opens this Friday, Jan. 23, with a reception from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Runs through Feb. 1. 489-2644.

Sleep Disorder

Horror veteran Jack Ketchum and horror and suspense novelist Edward Lee like to swap stories, which is how the collaborations forming the bulk of this anthology came about. Some of these tales include graphic sex, and very nicely written graphic sex, I might add! There is also a fair amount of extreme horror.

Speed Reader

Waxwings

In Raban's first novel since the mid '80s, readers come into gruesome contact with the disintegrating marriage of a pretentious writing professor and his neglected wife. Advance readers say one of the best aspects of the book is its frighteningly accurate depiction of Seattle during the dotcom boom.
