'dark, wickedly inventive comedy ... Awesome' Maxim.
'A darkly disreputable combination of horror, fantasy, thriller and gross-out humour ... genuinely terrifying, wonderfully effective ... will appeal and appal in equal measure' Scotland On Sunday.
a bravura performance, a disquieting glimpse into a richly imagined and horribly plausible parallel universe
I couldn't put Elliott's novel down. It's fantastic . . . An entertaining mixture of Palahniuk and David Lynch
The plot is full of wonderful grotesqueries and unfolds at a cracking pace. I was enjoying reading this book so much I forgot I was meant to review it.
Inventive, scary and darkly humorous novel has a dash of Stephen King and a hint of Lovecraft but is really sui generis. It may be a true one-off but that doesn't stop me wanting more
Elliott's prose is sharp and engaging . . . this intriguing book mixes fantasy with psychological horror to squirming effect
as much surreal poetry as macabre thrills . . . this is a first novel of real promise. At his best, Elliott writes with a power commensurate with the originality of his vision. It is not just that he has unusually nasty visions to put on the page but he has the ability to make us share them
