I keep a special spot on my bookcase reserved for my top ten favorite collections of short fiction. This book is on that shelf, along with volumes by Poe, Bashevis Singer, Ligotti, Robert Aickman, Borges, Bradbury, Le Fanu, Lovecraft, and Clark Ashton Smith. I can't recommend it highly enough.
Settle in and prepare to watch the characters come alive. So intense that I actually got cold chills! Spriggs writes with a style and passion that keeps you on the edge of your seat, you never know what to expect...
I picked up a copy at my favorite local bookstore, and wow, does it rock! It's been a long time since I've enjoyed a collection this much. Each story is strong--very strong--in its own right, but the thing I loved the most was the way they all hung together and interrelated. I'll say it again--wow! Highly recommended.
Robin Spriggs has presented us with a New Year's treat with his first compilation 'Wondrous Strange.' From the fantastic to the horrific to the humorous, these 'Tales of the Uncanny' kept me burning the night oil into the wee small hours. Mr. Spriggs leads us through a lush landscape of intertwining branches and gnarled roots which always prevent your seeing what's around the next bend. The new millenium welcomes such a pure voice in fantastic fiction. A true pleasure from a true original!
