About the Author
"Genuinely unnerving. An impressive debut."
- The Toronto Star
"Filled with thought-provoking, character-driven, psychologically horrific tales that veer slightly and satisfyingly into the weird, this collection is reminiscent of the deeply unsettling and disorienting worlds of Samanta Schweblin and Dan Chaon."
- Library Journal
"Impeccably well written stories of the peculiar and off-kilter, reminiscent of Joyce Carol Oates and Alison Moore. Characters ache and fret in disquieting narratives, blurry at the edges. Many writers of the macabre and fragile psychologies claim to inherit the mantle of Poe, but Birnie earns it in spades."
- Stephen Volk, Write of Ghostwatch, Afterlife, and the Dark Masters Trilogy
"These are strange, paranoid tales, no less dangerous or jagged for the comic matter-of-fact way in which they are told. Birnie's style is deceptively amiable - he ushers you into his thought experiments cheerfully enough, and then blindsides you with accounts of real love, grief and despair. These stories get right under your skin. They unnerve you. They will indeed haunt you."
- Robert Shearman, Author of We All Hear Stories in the Dark
