"Irresistible stories."--Evening Herald (Ireland)
"Subtle and disturbing in equal measure."--Coventry Telegraph on 20TH CENTURY GHOSTS
"[O]ne of the best [horror] collections of the year. Hill is a relative newcomer who consistently creates creepy, very disturbing stories."--Locus
"This solid, inventive, scary collection of stories reveals a writer who has thought hard about the problematics of horror."--New York Times on 20TH CENTURY GHOSTS
"[A] new take on the fantasy-horror genre...Highly recommended."--The Sun Herald (Sydney, Australia)
"[An] inventive collection . . . brave and astute."--New York Times Book Review (Editor's Choice)
"Each tale is unique, and the collection proves that Hill's talent is not limited to horror, but extends well into the mainstream."--Denver Rocky Mountain News
"The selections range from the mundane to the surreal, with a strong emphasis on the kind of horror tale perfected by Ray Bradbury, Peter Straub and Stephen King."--San Francisco Chronicle
"[A] lovely, earnest collection of short fiction."--Village Voice
"Alternately sad, scary, strange and at times even sweet, these tales will haunt you long after you've read them."--Parade (a "Parade Pick")
"Each of these chilling tales arrests you from the opening sentence and leads you -- trustingly, thanks to the simple mastery of the story-teller -- into a place of gulping fear."--Daily Mail (London) on 20TH CENTURY GHOSTS
