"Nicholson is the kind of writer who always surprises and always entertains."--Jonathan Maberry, Patient Zero

"Nicholson's Southern Gothic stories are beautiful, at times lyrical, and all the more eerie for it. With a few carefully chosen words he places a chill in the reader's heart that doesn't thaw until after the final page has turned."--Steven Savile, The Power behind The Throne

"Scott Nicholson is that wonderful being, even rarer than a vampire shortstop: a gifted writer with wisdom and imagination. He has moved into that literary shadow land between Neil Gaiman and Ray Bradbury. Send out the Welcome Wagon!"
-- Sharyn McCrumb, author of The Ballad novels

"Scott Nicholson’s stories have their own passion and heart (sometimes a warm, fuzzy heart, sometimes a twisted, black, and rotten heart). He has a fresh and true voice that will affect you, disturb you, enrage you, or make you laugh. He will not, however, leave you cold."--Kevin J. Anderson, co-author of the Dune series

"Lovecraft may have invented cosmic horror, but Nicholson brings it up close and personal."--Deborah LeBlanc, author of Water Witch

"Scott Nicholson has a gift for quirky, twisted, finely crafted tales that carry a powerful emotional impact. You can’t do much better than that." -- Dave Wolverton, author of Lords of the Seventh Swarm

"Scott Nicholson is a very entertaining writer...'"-- World Fantasy Award winner Tim Powers
