Editorial Reviews

Robert Boyczuk is a supremely talented short-story writer.

Cory Doctorow, author of Little Brother and Someone Comes to Town, Someone Leaves Town

Bob’s [stories are] spooky, memorable, deceptively ‘simple’ piece[s], built around scenarios that are truly original and genuinely scary. Bob has a real gift for inhabiting, rather than adopting, the outsider perspective; his work is about people, people like you, like me the sort of people you wouldn't necessarily want to be, yet may well end up fearing you already are.

Gemma Files, author of Kissing Carrion, Words Written Backwards and A Book of Tongues.

Boyczuk’s stories all have a twist a turn of the screw that breathes new life into some of the old forms and results in fiction as clever as it is entertaining.

Alex Good, Quill & Quire
