Reviews:

“…gripping and imaginative. Clark and Lebbon explore the power of stories that pass from fiction, to myth, to truth. Their styles mesh so well you’ll never be able to guess which author wrote which parts. Without a doubt, Simon Clark and Tim Lebbon are the two most exciting horror writers to emerge from the United Kingdom since Clive Barker.” – Garrett Peck

“A major triumph… [it] admirably retains Machen’s sense of dark revelation and mystical transcendence… a piece that is sure to earn both authors the support and acclaim of readers appreciative of dark miracles.” – Hellnotes

    I’d like to tell anyone who is considering reading this excellent novella, to please do. It reads like a magnificent, dark dream that will take you into the strange and wonderful world of Arthur Machen.

    Arthur Machen fans will obviously love this, but also will readers new to him. Sometimes a collaboration between two giant writers like this doesn’t always work out, but in this case it went far beyond just being well written.

    A slim little book that leaves you feeling like you’ve just read a 600- page epic novel. Novellas don’t get any better than this!

    Kudos to Tim and Simon for creating this awesome story that needed to be told.

    Mike, thank you so much, that’s so kind of you.
