"I found Secrets of the Weird to be an engaging and fascinating read. It is a highly unusual, admirably creative foray into a deeply, deeply disturbing world of fiction which nonetheless resonates with modern reality." -- Hal Bodner, author of The Trouble with Hairy and Bite Club!
"Secrets of the Weird is a harrowing walk through a landscape populated by modern horrors and lit only by failing neon, where the only saving graces are whatever bravery we can summon up from within and whatever kindness we can muster toward our fellow outcasts, and Chad Stroup is the best possible guide a reader could ask for." -- Jeremy P. Bushnell, author of The Insides and The Weirdness
"[Secrets of the Weird] is smart, frightening, and evocative all at the same time" -- Justin Pearson, The Locust, Dead Cross, 31G Records
"[A] skill akin to that of Stephen King... This is the right book at the right time considering the current social and political climate." -- W.J. Renehan, Dark Hall Press
"Brilliant! Wondrous! Fantastic! These are words that barely scratch the surface on how I fell about this book." -- Lyndon D. Johnson, Splatter Cafe
