"... a fine collection of short stories and poems presented to us by Crystal Lake Publishing. These stories are reminiscent of the old Tales from the Crypt. Remember as a kid, sitting in the backyard in the evening with a flashlight trying to outdo one another with the scariest tale? That's what these stories are like, only they're for our grownup selves." - Horror Novel Reviews
"... a perfect example of horror, blending gruesome imagery with a creeping dread that we can't easily shake off. This is a solid hit if I've ever seen one." - Zero Signal Magazine
"Whatever raises the hairs on the back of your neck, or has you jumping at the slightest sound, chances are that something here will hit close to home. Tales from the Lake Vol. 1 is a collection of tales well worth diving into." - Hellnotes
"The pieces in Tales from the Lake Vol. 1 range from the spellbindingly eerie to the Bizarro." - Up All Night Horror Fiction Review
