PRAISE FOR THE WORKS OF CONRAD WILLIAMS:
“Conrad Williams writes dark and powerful prose balancing the poetic and elegant with needle-sharp incision.”
"One of the authors most inspiring to me in terms of pushing the literary boundary of what horror means, or can achieve. His stories always startle as well as sparkle. Like many of the best writers, he paints a truthful landscape, then leaves the most horrific thing off screen, bidding you to picture it on your own. In the dark. Forever."
“Williams is so good at what he does that he probably shouldn't be allowed to do it any more, for the sake of everyone's sanity.”
