Reviews

"Existing at the sweet spot where A Canticle for Leibowitz and Blood Meridian meet, Chronister's Desert Creatures is a vivid investigation of faith, perseverance, and human violence as they exist at the end of the world. A scintillating first novel." --Brian Evenson, winner of the World Fantasy and Shirley Jackson Awards

"Kay Chronister has crafted an incredible setting, pushing the wild weirdness of the Sonoran Desert toward the furthest extremes of possibility. I will never forget this uncanny world, nor brave Magdala's quest across it, contending with holy saints and hellish killers in a landscape whose every inch and inhabitant is as dangerous as they are in dire need of healing." --Matt Bell, author of the New York Times Notable Book Appleseed

Praise for Thin Places:
"A powerful new voice in horror." --Locus Magazine

"Grim but effervescent, Chronister's economical prose packs a powerful punch." --Publishers Weekly
----Brian Evenson, winner of the World Fantasy and Shirley Jackson Awards
