"Mark Edward Hall writes like a master. Stephen King, yes, but also like Stoker, Poe, and Bradbury, yeah, even Shakespeare...all those good guys we've forgotten. He's literate and intelligent and poetic. His prose is hypnotic and seductive, it's also visceral, and edgy - you feel your heartbeat change. You question what sanity is. And madness. There are millions of suspense/horror chillers out there. But this author is also literary, he's the real thing." -Kiana Davenport, award winning author of House of Skin and Shark Dialogues.
"Hall has an uncanny knack for blending vivid, almost poetic prose with visceral images of jaw-dropping horror to great effect." -Bram Stoker award winning editor, Vince Liaguno.
"Poetic and eerily seductive, Hall pushes you to the edge, until you get lost in the beautiful madness of his creations." -Midwest Book Review
