Rave reviews for A SPECTRAL HUE

Thanks to everyone who bought my book.





It’s been getting a bunch of good reviews. The website Bookmarks has conveniently compiled excerpts of them here.





But my current favorite review comes from Leeman Kessler, aka PH Lovecraft, HP’s woke brother. His video review is awesome!

“There is peace in submission, but sometimes greater peace—lasting peace—in resistance.”
N.K. Jemisin, The Killing Moon

“True peace required the presence of justice, not just the absence of conflict.”
N.K. Jemisin, The Killing Moon

Kealan Patrick Burke
“Horror itself is a bit of a bullied genre, the antagonist being literary snobbery and public misconception. And I think good horror tackles our darkest fears, whatever they may be. It takes us into the minds of the victims, explores the threats, disseminates fear, studies how it changes us. It pulls back the curtain on the ugly underbelly of society, tears away the masks the monsters wear out in the world, shows us the potential truth of the human condition. Horror is truth, unflinching and honest. Not everybody wants to see that, but good horror ensures that it's there to be seen.”
