“Like the best horror fiction, this collection is at once subversive and invested in the peculiar delights of the genre. The result is a full-body experience, packed with gasps and shivers, pulse-pounding jolts and moments of intense instinctive recoil — shocking, yes, but completely enthralling and oddly uplifting as well.” ~The Los Angeles Review of Books 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
