"Stories by Harold Jaffe, Greg Beatty, Earl Javorsky, Brandi Bell, Kevin L. Donihe and satan165 (hilarious stuff) all display the combination of inventiveness and professionalism needed for success in this gray area of prose. Many of the other authors show outright genius--readers will be floored by it and think it a monstrous leap forward--and appreciate the breathtaking, exhilarating and often diabolical machinations of the human mind."--Absinthe Literary Review
"What makes a compilation like this stand out is the distinctive angle of each story. From one tale to the next, you're never really sure where you'll end up. From the quietly haunting to the appallingly shocking, this book keeps you on your toes and your mind in chaos."--Horror-Web
"Sick is just that--sick; a madman's demented fever-dream. Sometimes funny. Sometimes horrifying. Always engaging. This is dark fiction on the edge."--Brian Keene, author of The Rising
