Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Thrillingly original…A daredevil performance.” New York Times on 20th Century Ghosts
“Melancholy and very fine…should establish its author as a major player in twenty-first century fantastic fiction.” Washington Post Book World on 20th Century Ghosts
“Extraordinary…Hill is flawless…There’s not a false note or disappointing effort in this book…One of the most confident and assured new voices in horror and dark fantasy to emerge in recent years.” Publishers Weekly (starred review) on 20th Century Ghosts
“A series of terrifying accounts of the macabre is brought to life through David Ledoux’s splendid reading. Ledoux offers a straightforward approach, making Hill’s startling tales as believable as they are frightening…Dark, brooding, and realistic.” AudioFile on 20th Century Ghosts
