Editorial Reviews

Monster Librarian magazine - Monster Librarian
"There are stories of the weird and fantastic and stories of how the mind can play tricks on us—or how maybe the mind knows more than we think it does. There are stories of a future dystopian world, where the universe is controlled from afar by a totalitarian committee that has banished religion in the name of science. All of the stories are well-written and will leave you wanting more, so check out Scott Nicholson’s other two collections."
Book reviewer - Lauralynn Elliott
"I generally don't give short stories five stars. They always leave me wanting. But most of the stories in this collection are brilliant. And many are very disturbing. Scott Nicholson has quite an imagination! A great read."
Bestselling author - Kevin J. Anderson
"Scott Nicholson’s stories have their own passion and heart (sometimes a warm, fuzzy heart, sometimes a twisted, black, and rotten heart). He has a fresh and true voice that will affect you, disturb you, enrage you, or make you laugh. He will not, however, leave you cold."
Bestselling author - Tim Powers
"Scott Nicholson is a very entertaining writer."
Bestselling author - Dave Wolverton
"Scott Nicholson has a gift for quirky, twisted, finely crafted tales that carry a powerful emotional impact. You can’t do much better than that."
