- Nothing to Devour tabbed as one of Library Journal’s hotly anticipated Fall books
In its inaugural horror genre spotlight, Library Journal mentions the inevitable “requests for more terrifying vampire novels” that inevitably accompany the release of a new Anne Rice title, then suggests this solution: “Thankfully, the conclusion of Glen Hirshberg’s ‘Motherless Children Trilogy,’ Nothing To Devour (Tor, Nov.), follows quickly on its heels.”

- Review of THE ONES WHO ARE WAVING in BLACK STATIC
A great review for The Ones Who Are Waving, can be found in the newest edition (64) of Black Static. A few highlights: “Keenly felt and characterised…filled with little touches of detail that give the events a mythic and archetypal feel;” “…it is a story that ultimately asks questions about the nature of fiction, showing how it can transform lives, with the writers themselves becoming the ghosts of their own work. It’s a strong end to a collection that is gratifyingly offbeat, aptly fitting the bill as regards the book’s subtitle or tagline, ‘Tales of the Strange, Sad, and Wondrous’.”
- GOOD GIRLS Reviewed in LOCUS
From the Locus review: “…there is enough material in Good Girls for a novel twice its length. But the economy and grace of Hirshberg’s style allow him to fit this plenitude into a more modest number of pages, while maintaining its full emotional and thematic resonance. The novel continually returns to its title, interrogating notions of goodness. What, it asks, might the phrase ‘good girls’ mean for a mother or a young woman or a monster?… Is it possible for a monster to demonstrate goodness? It does all this while hurtling toward a climax that is heartbreaking, horrifying, and riveting.
“With Motherless Child, Glen Hirshberg embarked on a new phase of a career whose accomplishments were already many and considerable…. [Good Girls] fulfills the promise of its predecessor, and promises more to come. A third novel in the series has been announced; It cannot arrive soon enough.” –John Langan, Locus Magazine (Get the May 2016 edition–or a full year’s subscription–of Locus Magazine here.)
- Liz Hand Reviews GG for MAGAZINE OF FANTASY & SCIENCE FICTION
“…by making the damaged, grief-mad, yearning Sophie the emotional center of his tale, Hirshberg ensures our attention never leaves her…. The satisfyingly gruesome surprise ending nicely sets up the third and final book in Hirshberg’s brilliant, darkly captivating trilogy.” –Liz Hand, Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction (Pick up a copy to read the whole review).
