Reviews

"Darkly satirical in the best possible way [. ..] I loved the brilliant tension, the shocking incisiveness and the way each story holds a mirror to the sociology of now. "

Lisa de Nikolits

"Award-winning poet Daniel Scott Tysdal’s first fiction collection casts an unflinching eye at the darker stuff of life: suicide cults, internet trolls, violence, and more. While weaving intricate plots, Tysdal renders his often deeply flawed characters with empathy. "

"While Tysdal’s themes look measured and sedate, the guts of the stories writhe and churn with double-toothed sharks and other fearsome creatures of the deep. "
