Excellent review of Picking Up the Ghost!

"This is a clear analogy for the inner journey everyone must go through at some point in order to know themselves – the challenge of adolescence. As such, it is not just a great story, but also a deeply meaningful book. . .. It’s a well written book and I give it 4 stars."
—Tahlia Newland

Eutopia 'strikes at nerve endings'

The Philadelphia City Paper reviews David Nickle's Eutopia, saying: "As much as Nickle incorporates a lot of interesting, smart background stuff, he remains squarely in the land of things that go bump in the night. ...Nickle knows that horror needs to strike at nerve endings and not get too cerebral..."

ChiZine Roundup at Pulp 300!

Pulp 300 has done a set of four reviews in a row for ChiZine books, all of them highly favourable and earning three "guns" out of three.

On The Door to Lost Pages: " We dig these surreal interlinked stories and will certainly put Lalumiere’s first collection, Objects of Worship, on our TBR pile."

On Sarah Court: " Dear gussie, Davidson can write a good sentence. ...this is our favorite read of the year so far."

On Every Shallow Cut: "He’s on our esteemed 'Put Whatever Tripe You’re Reading Immediately Down and Pick This Up' list. ...Piccirilli is cooler than a New Guinea penis sheath."

And on The Thief of Broken Toys: "...the novella is the ideal literary length. Maybe we’ll wax eloquently at a future date as to why. For now let us simply bask in the glow of Lebbon’s latest."

You can see all of the reviews here.

ESC on Bookgasm

Bruce Grossman at Bookgasm recommends Every Shallow Cut: "There are some truly great lines that resonate in the mind. As short as this book is, it packs more energy than all but a few writers of today can muster."

The World More Full of Weeping: "Gorgeous"

August C. Bourré of Vestige writes: "The World More Full of Weeping is only about eighty pages, so I don't know whether to call it a novella or a short novel, but I don't care, because it's really good."

He also gives a shout-out to Erik Mohr in his review, calling the book (and all our ChiZine books) "gorgeous" and "Creepy in an awesome kind of way". Pretty cool!

Major Karnage vs. Robopocalypse!

Shelf Monkey has pitted our own Major Karnage against Doubleday's megahit Robopocalypse in a no-holds-barred book battle - and Karnage comes out on top!

"ChiZine has always put out a quality product, but this may be their first release that is just out and out genre merriment.

If Zajac sees fit to continue the adventures of Karnage, I, for one, will be eagerly awaiting the next installment."
