"Fans of folklore retellings will find plenty to enjoy." --Publishers Weekly
"A lovely, thorned, haunted gathering of tales of what it means to occupy a woman's body. Baba Yaga serves a reminder of the wildness sleeping within all of us. This collection brings her roaring to life." --Kristi DeMeester, author of Such a Pretty Smile
"These are stories about what it means to be a woman fluent in darkness. Each of these authors speaks Baba Yaga's language. It's the language of starlight, shadow, bone, and blood. They have borrowed the witch's spirit, blended it with their own and created a grimoire from which all of us can draw upon." --Angela Yuriko Smith, multiple Bram Stoker Award(R)-winning and Elgin Award-nominated author
"Into the Forest explores the folklore of Baba Yaga through new tales, filled with transformation and retribution, from a masterful group of authors. We travel back and forth in time, from Europe to the American South as violence and madness drive the used, abused, and betrayed into dense stretches of trees. There we find a path to strength and power, to unearthing or becoming the otherworldly Maiden, Mother, Crone." --Linda D. Addison, award-winning author, HWA Lifetime Achievement Award recipient and SFPA Grand Master
"Perfect for horror fans who can't get enough of folklore and fairy-tale retellings that veer in unexpected directions." --Booklist Starred Review
"The stories in Into the Forest collect the guts and bones of some of the world's oldest witch tales and refashion them into something new, beautiful, and gruesome." -Foreword Reviews

"Interpretations vary with delicious wildness., But what links the stories is a folkloric power located on the outer edge of our consciousness, yet which seems to burrow right into the centre of our souls." --Daily Mail UK

"This collection is weighty both in mission and volume, and with most stories running at only a few thousand words, it's a great one to, erm, peck at while you dream of running wild deep in the forest." --Lauren McMenemy, Horror Tree

"A powerful literary reflection... Outstanding in its diversity and interpretations, Into the Forest is very highly recommended not just for horror collections, but for libraries strong in women's literature, as well as for reader's book groups who would study the legend and realities of the Baba Yaga folktale as it journeys into the heart and soul of women's experiences and psychology." --Diane Donovan, Midwest Book Review
