Reviews

Praise for David Nickle

"The stories [in Knife Fight and Other Struggles] are sui generis in presentation, veering from the discombobulating nightmare that is "Basements" to the squid-laden eco-satire "Wylde's Kingdom" to the sci-fi love of "Loves Means Forever." When it comes to this book, only two things are certain; the stories never travel where you expect, and David Nickle is a monumental talent."
--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Believe the hype: David Nickle is very good."
--The Globe and Mail

"David Nickle is my favorite kind of writer. His stories are dark, wildly imaginative, and deeply compassionate--even when they're laced with righteous anger. He's at the top of his game in this new book of short stories, and that's about as good as it gets."
--Nathan Ballingrud, author of North American Lake Monsters

"David Nickle is Canada's answer to Stephen King. His writing charms even as it slices like a blade between the ribs: sharp, subtle, and never less than devastating."
--Helen Marshall, author of Hair Side, Flesh Side and Gifts for the One Who Comes After

"Rasputin's Bastards is a testament to the fact Nickle can write anything."
--The Winnipeg Review

"Eutopia is the kind of book I'd recommend to literary snobs who badmouth the horror genre while completely ignoring the multitudes of splendid books on the shelves. Nickle comes from a different cut of cloth than a lot of current horror authors. He's created a unique world that's a far cry from any of the current trends in horror fiction. In fact, his style seems generations removed from all the apocalyptic zombie and vampire novels on the market. Thankfully, he understands that the most important ingredients are strong characters, originality, and a compelling story. That his novel is also dark, frightening, and beautifully written is just icing on the cake."
--Chris Hallock, All Things Horror

"Few writers do psychosexual horror as well as Toronto's David Nickle, and with The 'Geisters he's back with another tale of voluptuous terror and the supernatural."
--The Toronto Star

"David Nickle writes 'em damned weird and damned good and damned dark. He is bourbon-rough, poetic and vivid. Don't miss this one."
--Cory Doctorow, author of Little Brother
