Review quote

"What emerges is a kind of snapshot of the field as it is continuing to develop, with continuities emerging between the writers who have been tilling its soil for the past couple of decades and those more newly arrived. It's a convincing argu-ment for the overall health of the genre, as well as a showcase for some of its best talent." -- John Langan, Locus

"There is an unplanned theme at work in many of these stories, a melancholy sadness that creeps and crawls in the shadows cast. A sense of loss that is palpable and human to be felt in nearly all of them. It's truly a wonderful gathering of the freshest voices in weird fiction. It's would make an amazing starter kit for those looking to dip their toes in the pool of this type of story. But dip quick, there are things in these waters that bite." -- John Boden, Ginger Nuts of Horror

"While there is no thematic link between the stories, there is a palpable sense of unsettling dread woven throughout the collection as a whole. Each story may approach weird from an entirely different angle, from the mundanity of everyday life with a warped spin on it, to an apocalyptic science fiction piece imbued with layers of strange wonder. This anthology boasts almost every type of weird one can imagine." -- Kev Harrison, This Is Horror

"This is most definitely a showcase of the genre recognized as weird fiction. Although many of them may fall under the horror genre, these stories are hard to pigeonhole into any single distinguishing category. With themes, settings, plots, and characters that run the gamut of everything from science fiction to fantasy, period to contemporary, and twisted humor to powerful sorrow, the one interconnecting theme is a deep and profound sense of the weird at work." -- Barry Lee Dejasu, Goodreads
