Scotland's premier horror website, Ginger Nuts of Horror, asked Rebecca and her Pieces co-writer, Michael Aloisi, for their thoughts on the dark fiction genre. Here's what transpired:
ScreamFix, America's number one horror, sci-fi, and fantasy fansite, picked the brains of Rebecca and Pieces co-writer, Michael Aloisi. Here's what they said:
Rue Morgue's review paints Pieces as "one of the most complex and nuanced literary portraits of the mind of a self-justifying serial killer in recent memory"
"The quality of the writing is excellent...a very enjoyable read and so I highly recommend getting a copy of Pieces"
-Karen Ruffles, Scream Fix
“What Rowland does best is get into the minds of the characters who border on insanity…she shows the reader that the mind and humans are truly the scariest thing in the world”
–Horror After Dark
"Writer/editor Rebecca Rowland proves herself a wily curator of the macabre"
-Shawn Macomber, Rue Morgue
"Rebecca Rowland’s 'Bent' wins the Most Cringe-worthy Story honor with her twisted tale of extreme body horror. Her well-drawn characters seem to come off the page but God forbid they do."
-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"
-Tony Jones, HorrorDNA
