PRAISE FOR DAVID NIALL WILSON'S WORK:
For the novel DEEP BLUE: "In this engrossing, poetic novel of spiritual evil and the possibility of salvation from Wilson (This Is My Blood), a burned-out musician, Brandt, is playing in an obscure band when he hears a homeless black man, Wally, play the purest blues on the harmonica he has ever heard, music that encapsulates all the pain of the world…" – Publisher's Weekly
For THE NOT QUITE RIGHT REVEREND CLETUS J. DIGGS & THE CURRENTLY ACCEPTED HABITS OF NATURE – "This story is just pure fun, from start to finish. It is a bizarre sort of mystery full of colorful characters and wacky situations. This sort of thing is actually hard to pull off, lesser writers could have it devolve into silliness that doesn't have you laughing so much as groaning. Wilson, however, always keeps the reader interested and entertains the hell out of you." – Mark Gunnels
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
