“Solid, inventive, scary…Reveals a writer who has thought hard about the problematics of horror.” New York Times on 20th Century Ghosts
“Range[s] from the mundane to the surreal, with a strong emphasis on the kind of horror tale perfected by Ray Bradbury, Peter Straub and Stephen King.” San Francisco Chronicle on 20th Century Ghosts
“Subtle and disturbing in equal measure.” Coventry Telegraph on 20th Century Ghosts
“Alternately sad, scary, strange and at times even sweet, these tales will haunt you long after you’ve read them.” Parade on 20th Century Ghosts
