“I could see the beginning of a vast, almost invisible spore migration from the broken remains at our feet, from the burgundy bell-shaped fungi, from the inverted wine glasses, from the yellow-green nodules. Like ghosts, like spirits, a million tiny bodies, in a thousand intricate shapes, like terrestrial jellyfish… they were gorgeous as they fled out the window, to be taken by the wind. In the faint light. Soundlessly. Like souls.” —From Shriek: An Afterword

 

“A desert island book, a tale you can lose yourself in for days, a novel of character in which the setting proves as the light fails to be the finest character of all.”
—Gene Wolfe

“Bloody brilliant.” —Hal Duncan, author of Vellum
