“This is a straight horror story and a fiendishly successful one at that.” ~Tangent Online on “Sing Me Your Scars”

Wow…one of the most powerful stories I have read in recent memory. This piece is both beautiful in its ethereal qualities, and horrible in its foundation. This one should be read in groups, and then discussed. Highly recommended.” ~Tangent Online on “The Floating Girls: A Documentary”

“‘Shall I Whisper to You of Moonlight, of Sorrow, of Pieces of Us?’ by Damien Angelica Walters is a story every bit as good as its title. A moving tale of loss and grief, Walters gives the reader a ghost story as catharsis rather than horror.” ~This is Horror
