Horror Movie Legend
"Rebecca Rowland's writing is a fresh and unique breath in the horror genre. I enjoyed reading such twisted stuff that is still grounded in reality."
Special Effects Legend
"Sometimes the best special effects are the ones done in the reader's mind; for her magically detailed description, Rebecca Rowland deserves an honorary FX award."
"Rebecca Rowland paints a very vivid picture with her writing, keeping me in the moment; as a horror reader, that's exactly what I want. I am glad these thoughts are in her head and not mine, which I consider a compliment of the highest regard!"
"[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
