Reviews

"The Twilight Pariah is Richard Linklater meets Stephen King meets Indiana Jones meets, well, Jeffrey Ford. His trademark mix of intelligence, creeps, melancholy, integrity, and wit is as addictive as it is compelling. I want to be Jeffrey Ford when I grow up." --Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts and Disappearance at Devil's Rock

"The Twilight Pariah kept me up for two nights running, alternately laughing out loud and looking nervously over my shoulder for ... well, read it and find out for yourself. Ford's latest is creepy, funny, and poignant -- a delight for connoisseurs of fantastic fiction." --Liz Hand

"Ford sticks the landing of this short, poignant and punchy book not by resolving the mystery, but by reminding the reader that there's nothing quite so horrific as having no future." --The New York Times

"Endearing characters, elegant descriptions, and imaginative monsters make this a breezy beach read for horror fans." --Publishers Weekly

"Tense and efficient." --Locus

"The Twilight Pariah, part ghost story, part murder mystery, swings from the craftily conventional to the truly inventive and creates compassionate characters in a very tight space." --Fiction Unbound

"The Twilight Pariah is the kind of story that makes the goosebumps rise." --NY Journal of Books
