"Lumley's well-crafted tales are satisfying entertainments."
"Outstanding here is the title piece, a tale that's enough to make a collection like this worthwhile, not to say must-have."
"Lumley ... succeeds admirably with large helpings of old-fashioned atmospheric terror in tales that recall H.P. Lovecraft and the Weird Tales authors."
"A most enjoyable romp."
