"... an examination of the human spirit, a darkened mirror that reflects the true nature of the struggle, not only for survival, but for civilization.
"A quirky collection of sci-fi, horror and fantasy, reminiscent in style of John Wyndham. A little something for everyone between the covers."
"Dark, edgy and inflected with just the right degree of lyricism."
