• "An accomplished conjuror of nightmares in the tradition of H. P. Lovecraft"

    The Times
  • "Ligotti is wonderfully original; he has a dark vision of a new and special kind, a vision that no one had before him"

  • "A generous serving of Edgar Allan Poe, a dash of Franz Kafka, a smidgen of Robert Aickman: These comprise the components in the cauldron of creativity of Thomas Ligotti. . . . His descriptive powers are mesmerizing."

  • "Quite unlike anything else being published ... One of the most unique voices in the field ... His imagery is breathtaking"

    Science Fiction Chronicle
  • "(Ligotti uses) restrained, lyrical prose and subtly disturbing images that Poe himself might well have admired"
