Editorial Reviews

Review

"Ashley-Smith debuts with a gorgeous, melancholy coming-of-age novella about girlhood and ghosts. . . . This eerie, ethereal tale marks Ashley-Smith as a writer to watch." -Publishers Weekly

"A beautifully written book about desire, pain, and loss, haunted by glimmerings of the supernatural. The Attic Tragedy manages to do more by intimation and suggestion with its fifty-three pages than most novels manage to accomplish over their several hundred." -Brian Evenson, author of Song for the Unraveling of the World

"J.Ashley-Smith doesn't put a foot wrong in this chilling, devastating story. The Attic Tragedy is hard to read in the best possible way." -Kaaron Warren, award-winning author of Into Bones Like Oil and Tide of Stone

"Lyrical and melancholy, The Attic Tragedy is a dark and poignant study of what it means to love and to be loved, to lose and to be lost. Ashley-Smith conjures a compelling, haunting tale that will stay with you like a ghost long after the last page is read." -Alan Baxter, award-winning author of Devouring Dark and Served Cold

"The Attic Tragedy is full of heart and darkness, both endearing and terrifying. These pages open like a raw wound. You don't read this story. It bleeds into you, and it leaves a scar on the way in." -Sarah Read, Bram Stoker Award(R) winning author of The Bone Weaver's Orchard and Out of Water

"The Attic Tragedy is beautifully engrossing, elegant, and lavish in the traditions of ornate architecture: J. Ashley-Smith's exquisite words are its sculpted stone blocks; his layers of resonant emotions their subtle coloring treatments; his backdrop of ghosts those detailed flourishes that drive all expressive design to be admired for impression and refinement." -Eric J. Guignard, award-winning author and editor, including That Which Grows Wild and Doorways to the Deadeye

"Softly shrouded in smoke and shadow, Ashley-Smith's The Attic Tragedy cuts close to the bone. Startling, pointed, and powerful." -Lee Murray, three-time Bram Stoker Award(R) nominee and author of Into the Ashes

"With The Attic Tragedy, J. Ashley-Smith proves himself an elemental writer of great talent. Emotions are bushfires. Foggy mountains shadow streets where violence festers. Dust, the microbes of otherness, settle over empty rooms that are never as empty as you think they are. This attic is a place of patchwork-detail where characters are forced to question their legacies, and I was held captive by their frightening revelations. A moody, melancholic read that I can't recommend highly enough." -Aaron Dries, author of House of Sighs and A Place for Sinners

"J. Ashley-Smith's short novella, The Attic Tragedy, is a sharp and delicate jewel that both shines beautifully and cuts deeply. Focusing on the friendship of two girls, it slowly unveils a deep sense of strangeness and dread, both puzzling and fascinating. Masterly crafted, it will please all lovers of Shirley Jackson, who will be thrilled to find again this mix of humanity, beauty and cruelty." -Seb Doubinsky, author of Missing Signal and The Invisible
