"A writer of imagination and insight, Bruce Taylor...amazed and intrigues."
-New York Times bestselling author Terry Brooks

"It's important to realize that Bruce's stories are not strange; the world is, and he's separated himself from it in order to show us new realities, with remarkable clarity and insight. I am one of his admirers, and I am not alone."
-Brian Herbert, co-author of the Dune series

"Bruce Taylor's writing is always unexpected, even extraordinary. He certainly earns his title of 'Mr. Magic Realism.'"
-Kevin J. Anderson, author of the Saga of Seven Suns series

"The specialty of Bruce Taylor is brief, playful, bizarre stories that occupy the mysterious middle ground somewhere between fantasy and the surreal."
-Robert Silverberg, Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author of Dying Inside and Starman's Quest

"Bruce Taylor has always owned an imagination capable of jarring the most jaded reader into a state of fascination. His tales grab me by the scruff, and I wait in suspense wondering not if he will shake me, but how. Best of all, he cares for his reader more than he cares for himself, and that's the mark of a true writer."
-Jack Cady, World Fantasy Award-winning author

Taylor has that skill of a writer to take you to absolutely new and exciting places. His craziness becomes infectous and his style is fresh. I thoroughly enjoyed Metamorphosis Blues and plan to get more of his work. Outstanding.
