"Another brilliant engagement with weird fiction from a writer fast becoming a modern master."
--Jeff VanderMeer, author of Annihilation and Finch

Relentlessly readable, highly atmospheric, sharply and often arrestingly written--Barron's prose style resembles, by turns, a high-flown Jim Thompson mixed with a pulp Barry Hannah.

Laird Barron has, in a remarkably short period of time, emerged as one of the leading writers of contemporary weird fiction.
--S. T. Joshi

"With sharp prose and wise, original stories, Barron has repeatedly proven himself one of the strongest voices in the field. This collection is a must read."
--Sarah Langan, author of Audrey's Door and The Keeper

"Laird Barron is one of those writers who makes other writers want to break their pencils. I'm serious. His work is that good. Worse than that, he's an original (damn him!), and the finest writer to join the ranks of the dark fantastic in a long, long time."
--Norman Partridge, author of Dark Harvest and Lesser Demons

"For my money, Laird Barron is far and away the best of the new generation of horror writers."
--Michael Shea, World Fantasy Award-winning author of Polyphemus

"...one senses that he has the potential to change the expectations of the next generation of readers by elevating the genre to a new standard of excellence."
--Lucius Shepard, author of Trujillo

"If you think there aren't any new Richard Mathesons or Harlan Ellisons out there, you need to read Laird Barron."
--Stewart O'Nan, bestselling author of A Prayer for the Dying

"Heartbreaking, hilarious, sophisticated, and gory, these stories will thrill, trouble, and haunt Barron's fans and have newcomers scrambling to search for his other work."
--Publishers Weekly, starred review
