Kirkus reviews CHIRAL MAD

KIRKUS REVIEWS, America’s premiere book review magazine, calls CHIRAL MAD “a compilation of entertaining, if often disturbing, stories” in its examination of the horror anthology published here on November 26, 2012.

CHIRAL MAD features 28 writers, such as Jack Ketchum, Gary Braunbeck, Gene O’Neill, Gary McMahon, Gord Rollo, and Jeff Strand, but, as the KIRKUS review says “they are all ultimately dissimilar—because madness affects everyone differently.”

  1. My secret Santa wants a wok. That’s kind of like a book, right?
