"Always surprises and always entertains."--Jonathon Maberry, The Dragon Factory

"Nicholson's Southern Gothic stories are beautiful, at times lyrical, and all the more eerie for it."--Steven Savile, Silver

"Lovecraft may have invented cosmic horror, but Nicholson brings it up close and personal."--Deborah Leblanc, Water Witch

"He has moved into that literary shadowland between Neil Gaiman and Ray Bradbury."--Sharyn McCrumb, the Ballad novels

"Scott Nicholson writes with a mixture of H.P. Lovecraft, Manly Wade Wellman, and Clive Barker."--Kevin J. Anderson, Saga of the Seven Suns
