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.”


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’.”
