"... Crisler's variety of subjects keeps the book fresh and flowing. You'll dig it." --The Horror Fiction Review (2009 Review) "... [an] entertaining ride on the dark side and a decent introduction to an author to watch for in dark anthologies and magazines." --HELLNOTES (2009 Review)

"...a kick missing from most of today's horror...packs a considerable punch." --FRIGHT.COM (2009 Review)

"Crisler's eclectic collection is something horror fans won't want to miss... Highly Recommended!" --Monster Librarian, 2009 "His talent with the mechanical craft of prose is undeniable, and his stories wield a distinctive, uncompromising edge. To enter Lincoln's world is not to tread lightly, because very often that "bad thing" you fear so much waits just around the corner, hungry and lurking." --SHROUD Magazine (2009 Review)

"Lincoln Crisler's Magick & Misery is an eclectic mix of supernatural chills, hardcore horror and good old-fashioned madness and mayhem. Definitely a writer worth keeping an eye on." --Gord Rollo, Author of THE JIGSAW MAN and CRIMSON

    Compilation of Gore and Violence

    Magick & Misery isn't what I'd classify as horror. It isn't scary at all, actually. Most of the stories end with a bit of nondescript gore or violence, but the rest is just marginally suspenseful buildup to an extremely predictable ending. I certainly wasn't impressed with the fear factor, but I also doubt twenty-somethings are the author's target audience; at least I hope not.

    With that said, I think this compilation would be perfect for 8-year-old girl scouts to read around a campfire (as if I have any idea what girl scouts actually do). These stories turn typical childhood experiences and fears, like running away from home or failing a test, into larger-than-life issues with severe consequences.

    After reading my last sentence, I'm really not sure why you'd want your kid to read this. No matter, 3 stars for writing something I didn't cringe at and for potentially scaring the pants off bite-size humans.
