‘…an inventive, versatile and luminous debut. A cabinet of curiosities crammed with well-crafted, richly textured and utterly absorbing stories.’ Andy Hedgecock, Interzone
‘…a very strong collection, well worth buying and reading, not once but many times.’
‘…a collection of characters that stay in the mind, fixed in brilliantly vivid images, well after reading. Highly recommended.’
