Editorial Reviews

Locus Online - Matthew Cheney
The uncertain traveler, sampling this carnival of oddities for the first time, might do best to start with some of the more traditional fictions, such as "The Universal Language of Silence" (a creepy tale) or "The Color of Laughter" (a cute science fiction story), which will begin to prepare the reader for the intellectual pleasures of the more substantial, less traditional pieces of fabulation scattered elsewhere in the collection.
Publisher's Weekly - Reed Elsevier
With imaginative vigor, Aguirre explores the fluctuating boundaries that separate human from inhuman, terrestrial from extraterrestrial, and natural from supernatural in the 29 fantasies in his debut story collection. ...Aguirre won a World Fantasy Award for editing the anthology LeviathanThree (2003) and readers who enjoyed that book's genre-bending content will find much to their satisfaction.
Author of The Fourth Circle - Zoran Zivkovic
Forrest Aguirreā€™s beautiful stories are a set of portals that lead to the very quintessence of the ancient and noble art of the fantastic. His narrative is the contemporary prose equivalent of the wildly imaginative paintings of Hieronymus Bosch.
