"A journey through this collection feels like an afternoon peering over the dustiest shelves of a museum of curiosities. I felt studious, peculiar, and intrigued."

"The ten stories in [McOmber's] debut collection This New & Poisonous Air are remarkable not only for their aesthetic (a thoroughly new combination of the dark and the weird) but also for the consistent quality of their writing, which allows McOmber to credibly transport his readers across both time and lines of belief."
“McOmber does an excellent job of creating multilayer characters, all somehow ill-at-ease in the situations in which they find themselves thrust The stories themselves aren’t as dark or grim as I would have thought, given the comparisons to Poe, but beneath each runs a subtext that a darkness resides in us all.”Historical Novel Society
