Editorial Reviews

Mark Seiber
"...his strongest, most terrifying and disturbing piece of fiction to date."
Blu Gilliand
"Seldom Seen In August showcases Burke's continued growth as a writer. With every published piece, the characterizations get sharper, the themes become more complex, and the voice becomes more distinct. Burke continues to push the boundaries of his own fiction, showing more of his influences even as he refines his own style. With this short, powerful story, readers can continue to see where investment in the early stages of this writer's career are going to pay dividends for some time to come."
Kent Allard
"Burke does a good job of creating a sense of dread despite the intentionally unappealing protagonist, and he takes the story in directions that are unanticipated. (From reading the description, you probably think you know where the story is headed. You're wrong.) It's always difficult to flesh out a character in the brief pages of a short story, but Burke does it well, which is why he is a master of the form."
