Joseph S. Pulver, Sr., author of The Orphan Palace
Already a master of the horror short story, he shows himself equally skilled at novel-length work.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review
The Croning deserves a place in the bookcase next to T.E.D. Klein’s The Ceremonies, Ira Levin’s Rosemary’s Baby and Fritz Leiber’s Our Lady Of Darkness and that is the highest recommendation that I can give.”
"The scariest writer on the planet has to be Laird Barron."
Paul Goat Allen, The Barnes & Noble Book Blog
"Laird Barron has, in a remarkably short period of time, emerged as one of the leading writers of contemporary weird fiction."
S. T. Joshi
If you think there aren’t any new Richard Mathesons or Harlan Ellisons out there, you need to read Laird Barron.”
Stewart O’Nan, bestselling author of A Prayer for the Dying
Laird Barron is one of those writers who makes other writers want to break their pencils. I’m serious. His work is that good. Worse than that, he’s an original (damn him!), and the finest writer to join the ranks of the dark fantastic in a long, long time.”
Norman Partridge, author of Dark Harvest and Lesser Demons
For my money, Laird Barron is far and away the best of the new generation of horror writers.”
Michael Shea, World Fantasy Award-winning author of Polyphemus
