Two great reviews on the British Fantasy Society website.

This weekend two great reviews were published on the British Fantasy Society website for books I am directly involved with, one as the author, the other as co-editor.

Matthew Johns reviewed my Lovecraftian horror novel The Return, ending with:
"Riley’s tales of the weird and evil are always fantastically well written – truly gripping yarns that keep the reader engaged and enthralled throughout.  At times gruesome, filled with superb detail, witty dialogue and believable characters, The Return is a classic work of horror that deserves a place on your bookshelf."

Dave Brzeski wrote a very detailed, excellent review of Kitchen Sink Gothic, edited by me and my wife Linden, with the closing summary:
"...on the whole this is a solid collection of stories with no absolute duds."

"...this is Kitchen Sink Gothic—like Kitchen Sink Drama, only scarier. What’s not to like? No haunted mansions here; no bloodsucking counts. No, the horror here is targeted just where it tends to be in real life, at ordinary people who don’t have enough money to protect themselves—indeed some of the horrors in these stories are quite mundane in origin, but certainly no less terrifying for that."
