"Terrifying wisdom rises from the chill of this book. With a distant, objective voice, Nicolas Hundley ushers us into the forms of modern grief and human trespass only our historical moment has managed to invent. The Revolver in the Hive is a revelation of the cold, pained world of our own making, yet an 'iridescence/ indigenous to the dark' still shines out of this astonishing collection."-Katie Ford
"Nicolas Hundley's book, The Revolver in the Hive, is so full of surprises it applauds itself into an eerie silence. I love these poems. They are full of magic. One cannot paraphrase them. They are simply there, like a comet or a frog."-James Tate
"In The Revolver in the Hive, Nicolas Hundley makes use of so much of what poetry has to offer us. Everything in the book is touched with poetry's powers. Hundley loves poetry and he respects us, the best combination to find when one encounters a new book. It's alive in these pages, it's significantly additional."-Dara Wier
"This is a collection which relies on the unique powers of poetry to evoke and allude. Hundley wields these powers in a deliberate and accomplished way that is ultimately very affecting."-Green Mountains Review
"The reconciliation of a salvation and surrender becomes the task of a intermittent series of prose poems here, and these are some of the best moments in the collection." -The American Reader
