LITTLE BLACK SPOTS continues to garner praise, which is very fulfilling since I think the book contains some of my best short work.
First up, the venerable speculative fiction review site Tangent Online issued a strong review for the book on its site today. I was even told that two of the new stories featured in it made it to the site’s recommended reading list for 2018. I don’t know which stories these are. We’ll all find out when it publishes its annual list, sometime in December.
Second, noted critic and WHC Horror Grandmaster Michael Collings published his review of LITTLE BLACK SPOTS today, too. In a perfect, positive example of when it rains, it pours, he seems to quite like the book as well.
“Taff is capable of direct storytelling, but his greatest strength lies in his poeticism, his ability to transform the gristle and bone of horror into something that passes through the visceral and approaches the transcendent.”
And thanks for giving it a read.
