Prairie Fire on Claus

Nickle and Schroeder write with a fine ear for the disturbingly perverse, and their story is as sick and twisted a version of Santa Claus as I have ever encountered. Any parents that expose their children to this little bit of nastiness should be put away at once.

Jeffrey Ford reviews Knife Fight

David Nickle’s Knife Fight and Other Struggles is a collection of thirteen unique glimpses into the weird. Dynamic imagination, masterful writing of both the every day and the nightmare, characters that breathe, and a dark sense of humour make this a keeper. If you’ve not yet read Nickle’s fiction, Knife Fight is a great place to start. If you have, you’ve no doubt already bought this book.

Hellnotes on Night Inside

Inside is at times bleak, rife with captors that love torture and snuff films and create both. However, within this story of incest, greed, necrophilia, and a multitude of other horrors, Baker pens some beautiful descriptions. I appreciated her ability to get at the core of what motivates her characters and lay it bare for the reader to see, no matter how disturbing that truth may be.
