What others are saying about Jason Sanford's short stories:

"Few SF/fantasy writers generate a buzz through short fiction alone, but Jason Sanford is an exception. Over the past few years, he's created a growing fan base through his brand of modern speculative fiction, something he called 'SF Strange.'" – Jeff VanderMeer

"Interzone is really spoiling me when it publishes Jason Sanford so regularly. As far as I'm concerned, they couldn't publish too much of this author if they named it Jason Sanford's Science Fiction Magazine." – Sam Tomaino, SFRevu

"A writer whose reputation grows with each story." – Colin Harvey, Suite101

"Sanford (and some other writers) are producing SF that truly has a different feel than much that has gone before." – Rich Horton, Locus, February 2011

"Sanford expertly blends world building and storytelling. In fact, he makes it look easy." – John DeNardo, SF Signal
