"Writer/editor Rebecca Rowland proves herself a wily curator of the macabre"

                     -Shawn Macomber, Rue Morgue

                      -Randy Chandler, The Year's Best Hardcore Horror

"[Rebecca Rowland] should be applauded for producing such a solid and wide-ranging collection which bravely avoids supernatural horror; she has a wicked sense of humour, explores surreal situations with panache and tackles some tough uncompromising areas of everyday horror"

The Horrors Hiding in Plain Sight

Come to life in seventeen stories of psychological horror, the residents of Rebecca Rowland’s universe dwell in the everyday realm of crime and punishment tempered with fixation and madness.
