Praise and Reviews:
"Gary McMahon's vision is as bleak as a Yorkshire moor, but it glows with a wintry light that illuminates the dark we live in. His prose and his sense of place are precise and evocative, and his characters are as real as you and me. He's one of the darkest - which is to say brightest - new stars in the firmament of horror fiction."- Ramsey Campbell
"McMahon straddles the line between crime and horror, and succeeds in both genres, just as his hero Thomas Usher is the gatekeeper to an unpredictable world where the line between life and death is increasingly erased; this is a unique series that's gaining resonance and power as it develops."- Christopher Fowler
"Ignore the doom-mongers, Horror is alive and well in the UK with outstanding writers such as Conrad Williams, Adam Nevill and Joseph D'Lacey raising the bar ever higher with each new release but Gary McMahon surpasses them all with a body of work, shorts, novels and novellas, that feels both thematically and narratively interconnected and suggests – no, demands – that we devour each new story."- Read Horror
