Compromising the Truth by Bryn Fortey has received a tremendous review on Andrew Darlington’s website, Eight Miles Higher.
These are storyteller’s tales that both rip into your mind like fishhooks and soak into your consciousness like high-grade toxic bootleg hooch, then hang around like the earworm hook you can never get rid of, leaving aftertastes of joy. Bryn plays games that tie truth into conundrums, beguiling anecdotes, unreliable memory or alternate worlds of sly wonder.

Regular Alchemy Press editor Jan Edwards’ collection, Fables and Fabrications, has received a rather splendid review by Andrew Darlington. He describes the book thus:
You’ll be drawn to this book – in her words, like a hungry she-bear scenting tethered sheep. Announced as ‘fourteen tales of mystery, mirth and the macabre’ this is not the grind-core slasher-horror of gut-wrenching torture-porn, more the luring strangeness of some lost golden age.
