"Buy your tickets, step up, and enter the world of Alan Baxter's debut collection, Crow Shine. Here fates are brutal, justice is swift and merciless, yet even the most ruthless characters are sometimes-just sometimes-strangely touching. Crow Shine will terrify, surprise, and stun you." Angela Slatter - World Fantasy and British Fantasy Award winning author "Crow Shine, by Alan Baxter, is a sweeping collection of horror and dark fantasy stories, packed with misfits and devils, repentant fathers and clockwork miracles. Throughout it all, Baxter keeps his focus on the universal problems of the human experience: the search for understanding, for justice, and for love. It's an outstanding book." Nathan Ballingrud - author of North American Lake Monsters "Alan Baxter's fiction is dark, disturbing, hard-hitting and heart-breakingly honest. He reflects on worlds known and unknown with compassion, and demonstrates an almost second-sight into human behaviour." Kaaron Warren - Shirley Jackson Award-winner and author of The Grief Hole
