A very pleasing review by Stewart Horn of the BFS.
‘The title story is probably the highlight: a grand epic told in a few short chapters about a man trying to rescue his wife from Hell. Reminiscent of Machen’s ‘Great God Pan’ in tone.’
‘Overall, a satisfying read. A well written mix of the literary, the trashy and the darkly humorous. A fine addition to any horror lover’s library.’
Any comparison to Machen brings out a large hurrah from me.
And another review from Matthew Baker of Shattered Ravings (love that blog title)
‘The minute I laid eyes on the title, I knew I had to read this book. I didn’t know what a ‘heaven maker’ was or why it might be gruesome, but the mystery of these questions drew me in. I’m very glad I gave this one a shot, too… author Craig Herbertson has a vivid imagination rife with brutal originality and terrifying concepts. If you’re a fan of short horror fiction, put this book on your Must Own list.’
Must admit I put ‘must own’ in bold myself.
‘Herbertson pulls the reader into each story from the beginning and then delivers a sucker punch when it is least expected.’
Is it entirely human to feel chuffed when people like what you write? Makes you think you’ve done something worthwhile.
