Editorial Reviews

Palmetto Review
Clarke is a practiced writer who wishes to create in the language and lore of the classical literary period. He deftly avoids anachronisms while keeping this Poe-reminiscent tale surging with richly contrived revelations on every page.Intelligent fans of gothic horror and classic fiction will thoroughly enjoy The Flowers of Spring.
