Review and Comment

On “The Whimper” [original novella, previously unpublished, written 2015)

“The Whimper” is damn good. Lovely, subtle prose, as usual, superb concept and… it was both cerebral, working on this complex level conceptually, and really cinematic at the same time. Frankly, I can’t think of any other story I’ve ever read that manages this kind of fusion. (Kyla Ward)

On Peripheral Visions: The Collected Ghost Stories

“Hood’s style of writing varies across the stories, but he is always aware of the key ingredient of a good ghost story: atmosphere. There’s a palpable sense of mounting tension to the best of these stories and their chilling and sometimes ambiguous climaxes linger in the mind long after reading. As such Peripheral Visions is recommended to all ghost story fans; an embarrassment of riches likely to provide months of reading pleasure.” (James Everington, This is Horror)
