The Harvard Crimson: "[Bushnell] has written a work that is immensely entertaining, and more than being merely diverting, is truly funny."

The Weirdness - The Barnes & Noble Review
SF author Paul Di Filippo reviews my book: "Bushnell is no half-hearted magical realist or dabbler in trendy interstitial allegory, but rather a full-fledged, proudly non-mimetic genre fabulist, a living disproof to the absurd contention that comedy in fiction cannot produce a work of gravitas with a red clown nose firmly in place."

Book Report: The Weirdness | gemma D. alexander
Yep: "For a story about gods and devils, filled with magical battles, Bushnell mostly focuses on practical questions of power – who is bigger and stronger? Who has the gun? How does one resist the temptation to avoid hard work or to sidestep consent when power makes it easy to do so?"

Open Books Store • Lizzy Recommends: The Weirdness by Jeremy...
"And then things happen and the things that happen are not the things that you’ll expect to happen. I want to describe each of the best parts, but I can’t bring myself to even give hints that could ruin it for you. I will say: The Weirdness is simultaneously the most perfect skewering of the overly-pretentious literary scene and the most perfect skewering of trite genre tropes, and I was cackling with delight for the entire book.

Shelf Awareness for Readers for Tuesday, March 11, 2014 | Shelf Awareness
"With a deft, self-deprecating touch, Jeremy P. Bushnell makes dealing with the devil, the world-ending threat of a lucky cat statue and shapeshifting demon sex-wolves seem plausible--perhaps downright inevitable--as The Weirdness manages to soar beyond the potentially familiar tropes of urban fantasy with a strong sense of style and character."

Book review: “The Weirdness” by Jeremy Bushnell - Books - The Boston Globe
"[A]n utterly charming, silly, and heartily entertaining coming-of-age story about a man-boy who learns to believe in himself by reckoning with evil."
