"Nathan Ballingrud is one of my favorite contemporary authors and any time he's got a new book out I run to the front of the line. His work is elegant and troublingly, wonderfully disturbing."---- Victor LaValle, award-winning author of THE CHANGELING
"Nathan Ballingrud's brilliant fiction brims with imagination, integrity (I do not use that term lightly), and an authentic world-weary dread that bores directly into your heart. With Wounds you'll gladly follow Nathan to Hell and (maybe) back."---- Paul Tremblay, award-winning author of THE CABIN AT THE END OF THE WORLD and A HEAD FULL OF GHOSTS
STARRED REVIEW "[Ballingrud's] evocative and strangely beautiful descriptions of the grotesque and terrible are sure to linger long after they are read."-- "-- Publishers Weekly"
"Ballingrud has secured his place as a formidable voice and talent. A wonderfully disturbing delight."-- "Winnipeg Free Press"
"Ballingrud writes darkness with such allure."-- "Aurealis"
Best Horror Fiction of the Year selection-- "Washington Post"
"Stretch[es] the boundaries of the genre by employing these grand, horrific worlds. "The Butcher's Table" reminds me of the first time I read Clive Barker's "In the Hills, the Cities." It's horrifying, but there's beauty."--The New York Times
"In only two slender collections, Nathan Ballingrud has emerged as one of the field's most accomplished short story writers."--The Washington Post
