Review of Shadow Man at the Ampersand Review

Joe Clifford (author of the collection Choice Cuts and the forthcoming novel Wake the Undertaker (both Snubnose Press)) reviewed Shadow Man for the Ampersand Review, saying, in part:
Archer so seamlessly weaves in and out of narratives—slipping behind the scenes, dying, coming back to life, assuming new identities—that when versions of him start popping up in other writers’ novels, real-life swapped for the make-believe, the fabricated for the immortal, it all feels perfectly normal. Which is a testament to Blackwell’s dedication to his craft. He isn’t merely a fanboy; he proves master of the milieu, expertly exploiting infrastructure in a highly original way.
