"Those who recall this interview last year will remember u.v. ray isn't one to sugarcoat or tread softly; his words delivered like powerful blows of hammer on anvil. Spiral Out is less a work of outsider fiction and more a state of the nation address. It's not a pretty sight and not only because it's set in late 1980s Birmingham inhabited by Birdland. Karzoso is no respecter of political correctness. He'll say what's on his mind, speak his truth. It's a brutal, horrible, meaningless world out there with the only genuine truth being that we all die."
--- Mark Raison, Monkey Picks

"U.V. Ray holds nothing back in this very interesting book.. The main character in the book's name is Mark Karzoso. He has spent most of his life binging on drugs and booze along with dysfunctional relationships... It may be safe to assume that U.V. takes a lot from his personal life and utilizes it thru Mark. I know, it sounds like a lot like one of your good friends... It is an interesting read and makes me happy that I did not get involved with heavy drug use...
"On the back of the book he even has a quote from Charles Manson saying he could have written the book. U.V. has a writing style reminds me alot of Hubert Selby Jr or Charles Bukowski... I strongly suggest devouring this book. Read it and learn from it..."
--- Ginger Coyote, Punk Globe

"You probably laughed at the title of this review: 'The greatest writer of my generation,' but to be honest I don't care. Nobody writes about the pubs, clubs and gutters of normal working class life better than UV Ray. Because for most of us life isn't glamorous and full of chances to better ourselves. It's about the reality of drugs, alcohol and the violence that is always on the periphery of most of people's lives, except the very fortunate.
"This novella is polished and tight, more so than UV's other work. It deserves to be read and it's a travesty that it's not a full length book. Don't get me wrong; Mark Karzoso is not a hero and at certain times I didn't even like him. He deserves what he gets, but at the end, on the final page; I got to the last paragraph and I wanted to know more - to even go with him. To me, that is the sign of great writing. Like I said: 'The greatest writer of our generation.'"
