John Langan on 'grotesquerie'

John Langan, one of the finest writers in our field, had the following to say about grotesquerie:

"grotesquerie contains the latest records of Richard Gavin's continuing explorations of the intersection between the mundane and the numinous, the earthly and the spectral, the pastoral and the horrific.  Drawing on and in dialogue with such writers of the visionary weird as Aickman, Ligotti, and Machen, Gavin's fictions extend the tradition into bold new territory.  Original, idiosyncratic, Richard Gavin is like no one else." --- John Langan, author of The Fisherman and Children of the Fang and Other Genealogies

I am incredibly flattered by and grateful for John's words.

grotesquerie will be available September 1st in both paperback and e-book editions.
