If you thought Laird was a master of the short form (and he IS! !!), wait until to read this . . . His 1st novel is pitch perfect! This is one of the finest novels I've ever read.

Sirensongs I'm so envious that you got to read this already. I'm really looking forward to it, but I'll have to wait until May to read it, like the rest of us mere mortals. ;)

Sam Joe, you got me to read Mr. Barron in the first place, and I really owe you for that. I am beyond impatient to tear into this one, SO excited!

Ann Schwader I got to read this early, too. Not sure that it's quite "pitch perfect" on all details, but he does female characters much better than most male horror writers seem to. Great SF take on the Lovecraftian material, too.
