Review quote

Praise for Tim Lebbon "[Tim Lebbon] possesses a rare ability to force readers to look inward, not always outward, for the scariest things in the world. While we may not like what Lebbon is showing us . . . there's no denying the man knows his stuff."
--Dreadful Tales

"A writer at the height of his powers."
--Ramsey Campbell, author of Thieving Fear and The Grin of the Dark

"Tim Lebbon is one of the most exciting and original talents on the horror scene."
--Graham Joyce, author of The Limits of Enchantment
