Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A vital, witty, frightening, erotic and, intelligent page-turner about the follies of youth, deeply immersed in an arcane world that lurks beneath the safe, definable surfaces of the everyday.” Fangoria
“Genre veteran Matheson frames this bittersweet blend of fantasy and romantic suspense as the “true” reminiscences of 82-year-old Alex White, the author of such novels as Midnight Blood Thirst and Midnight Flesh Hunger under the name Alex Black...The self-pitying Alex may ramble in telling his straightforward tale, but Matheson remains as ever a competent craftsman.” Publishers Weekly
“Matheson himself is a literary faerie of sorts, his trick being his ability to coax off a story’s familiar pathway to take us deep and deeper into his world until we accept what we instinctively reject. Those open to such imaginings couldn’t ask for a better guide.” Associated Press
“There have been several recent collections of Matheson’s short fiction, but his legion of fans will be thrilled that here, finally, is a new full-length novel…Matheson is a veteran genre writer, who published his first novel nearly sixty years ago, and fans will be delighted to see that his abilities have not diminished.” Booklist
