T. Allen Winn has a nice review of Volume One up at MK Horror. Key quote here: “If you haven’t partaken of this little jewel, I encourage you to do so, but beware, what lies beneath a mortal’s skin could be something marvelously demonic.”
This is the kind of review I love to read; Mr. Roth takes the time to set his reading experience in the greater literary and social context of the world around him. It’s a great meditation on the form of the short story as well as a review of all four volumes of The Crimson Pact.
Oh, and he also has this to say about The Crimson Pact:
Almost 30 years later The Crimson Pact supplants Clive Barker’s Books of Blood series as the modern compendium of fantasy horror short stories.
You can get all four volumes from most online booksellers, or directly at the website.
We have Goodreads Giveaways for the deadtree editions of The Crimson Pact, running only from NOW until Halloween!
