Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Dennis Etchison is one hell of a fiction writer, and if you have not read his volume of stories, The Dark Country, you have missed one of the great volumes in our peculiar field. The stories are not just good; they are without exception exciting, and in some cases genuinely great.” Stephen King
“An above-average collection…for fanciers of dark fantasy/horror with heavy contemporary overtones.” Kirkus Reveiws
