About Tim Jeffreys
"At his best Jeffreys writes memorable, perturbating prose with an overwhelming sense of menace. The stories stay with the reader, touching something in the psyche that is both troubling and intriguing." Bristol Review of Books.
"I've never before encountered a new author (new to me, in any event) whose work...grabs me so significantly from page one. When on his top form as demonstrated here...(Tim Jeffreys)...has the precious ability to grapple, I sincerely believe, with a writing gear in the horror or weird fiction genre beyond the reach of most."
