A Dirge for the Temporal

Overview

Annotation: A Dirge for the Temporal, Darren Speegle's second collection of fiction, bursts with sensations. A Dirge lingers on the dark mystery of the supernatural, creates the giddy feeling of fear mixed with excitement, that only comes from partial revelations, things half-glimpsed and misty. Like H.P.
Lovecraft or Edgar Allen Poe, Speegle's stories belong to the twilight hour, just after the glorious reds...

Editorial Reviews

SFReader - Book Reviews Editor
Two things you must possess in order to enjoy Darren Speegle's collection, A Dirge for the Temporal. The first would be a love of language. The second, a hunger for the surreal....From what he has displayed here, Darren Speegle is obviously a writer to keep an eye on. AndA Dirge for the Temporal is a collection that should be on the shelves of dark fiction fans everywhere.
Cemetery Dance - David Niall Wilson
There is fantasy here, and horror to be sure, but there is also wonder, and a beauty of language that a lot of the fiction attributed to those genres lacks…there is a lot of bang-for-the-buck between the covers. A Dirge For the Temporal is a strong collection of surreal, literate fiction. Highly recommended.
Chi-Zine - William D. Gagliani
If you prefer your fiction grounded in ultra-realism, you'll not likely appreciate these exercises in bizarre obfuscation. But if you're into characters who speak as if they hold arcane knowledge, whose actions reflect a grand design not immediately obvious to most, or whose principal trait may well be madness, then A Dirge for the Temporal will fit the bill nicely and balance out the more typical horror fare.
Flesh & Blood - Drew Williams
A feast for the horror fan who prefers his fiction rich with imagery, symbolism, and beautiful prose. Though thoroughly modern in tone and subject matter, the stories collected in A Dirge for the Temporal more than casually reveal the literary influence of such masters of the form as Poe, James, and de Maupassant
Stoker Award winning author of The Rising - Brian Keene
Darren Speegle writes with the beauty of a shotgun, the delicateness of a razor, and the symphonics of a scream. His work is moody, evocative and always disturbing. He is, quite simply, one of the consistently best up-and-coming horror writers in the business. Do yourself a favor and read him now.
