Book Reviews: DARK RIVER PRESS Reviews Verliege - Extraordinary!!

 

 

Pre-release I had offered copies of Verliege for reviews. Amy K. Marshall contacted me and requested a copy.  Ms. Marshall wrote book reviews for the now defunct Dark River Press. I was honored when I read her review of my supernatural thriller/horror novel.

 

" I was reminded of Gilman’s “The Yellow Wallpaper” (1892) and William Hope Hodgson’s accounting of the final voyage of the Mortzestus (1909), and the telling of Lovecraft’s “The Statement of Randolph Carter” (1919).  Such is the narrative of this in comparison with these types of confessional stories. Like Gilman, Hodgson, and Lovecraft, the richness of dialog is not lacking in Rivers’s prose. The creatures of Verliege have some similarities with Tim Powers’s nephilim in The Stress of Her Regard, but without the vampiric tendencies. I hope the reader realizes that I am tossing out these comparisons to illustrate the depth of craft honed in Verliege. Rivers does not so much stand upon the shoulders of these giants as he rubs elbows with them."
