PRAISE FOR THIS BOOK:

"If you revere the 'traditionalists' of the horror field like I do -- Lovecraft, Hugh B. Cave, Clark Ashton Smith, Manly Wade Wellman (who was one of my mentors, I'm proud to say) -- then you'll love these tales. Many of them would have had pride of place in any issue of Weird Tales in the 30s or 40s."
--Al Sarrantonio, author of Skeletons, Moonbane, and Halloween and Other Seasons

Editorial Reviews

Publisher's Weekly - Anonymous Reviewer
For This is My Blood: "Wilson's prose is smooth and powerful, carrying its allegorical weight with grace. His first novel is one of the most unique vampire stories to appear in recent years, balancing themes of damnation and prophesy against those of faith and redemption." – Publisher's Weekly
Count Gore's Website - J. L. Comeau
"This is an exquisite meditation upon the nature of pain and redemption written with a blues sensibility that rolls through the mind like bleak, resounding chords of dark music. The perfect novel for a hot, sultry night." – J. L. Comeau – CountGore.com
Internet - Reader Review
For The Orffyreus Wheel – " The book started off with a bang. From page one the book is intense and filled with suspense." – Blondie – Amazon.com
