This just in, one of WEIRD fiction's best writers has read TOP and had this to say --
"Joe Pulver's poetic prose is hypnotic and intoxicating, so beautiful
and strange that it transports the reader. Yet it does the work of
creating fascinating characters and telling story. Story-telling is an
art, and none are more accomplished than Pulver. Weird fiction's primal
duty is to fuck [alternative word: debauch] your brain and kiss your
sense of wonder. This book has done that for me, as few horror novels
have. Absolutely brilliant."
