Reviews
"Peckinpah riders on a Breugel trail, things walled-up or things in reliquaries, and language as close to the splintering bone as it can get. In Hollow, yet again, B. Catlin retools the fantastic for beyond-fantastic times. Unmissable."
--Alan Moore, author of Jerusalem

"[Hollow] achieves an ungainly beauty and a crooked wisdom . . . Each chapter offers the stunned reader a new marvel. But Hollow also offers reflections on the relationship between art and life, and, perhaps more pressingly, between death and art. It's a tribute to long-dead geniuses that will also thrill readers entirely ignorant of European painting . . . Hollow is the strangest, most original, and most satisfying fantasy I've read in ages."
--Matthew Keely, Tor

"A sheer, shuddering delight . . . The whole novel is not just fun, but very clever fun . . . Catling is a rare kind of writer."
--Stuart Kelly, The Scotsman

"Fascinating . . . With lush, erudite prose and a large cast of darkly eccentric humans and monsters, this spellbinding slipstream novel from Catling feels like stepping into one of Hieronymus Bosch's playfully macabre paintings."
--Publishers Weekly
