“A sad, poignant tale, beautifully written.” — Sam Tomaino at SFRevu

“There are a number of the dead in Kressel’s tale. They are a melancholy bunch, always waiting for life to find them again. It has been said that horror is about the unknowable and that death is the greatest unknown of all. Kressel paints a good picture of death that anyone is sure to fear.” — Paula Guran for Locus

“This is a haunting and slowly-unraveling story about ghosts and harm, hopes and waiting…It’s a difficult and heavy story that manages a palpable darkness and a stunning ending. A great read!” — Charles Payseur at Quick Sip Reviews.

“This is a terrific horror story, chilling and dark and evocative. Several lost souls (and bodies) mingle on the roadside somewhere in the middle of nowhere, hoping for someone to find them. Cars pass, but the souls remain lost, and in the darkness among them waits the Neverman. Lyrical and haunting.” — Maria Haskins.
