Other accolades in the media include:“Whitbourn’s wit is both unforced and splendidly droll.” -The Daily Express“These stories are not comfortable to read, but they still bring enjoyment of good company and the vicarious chill of a good fright at someone elses expense, and as such are to be heartily recommended.” - Interzone“Original and intriguing.” - Starburst“Pulled off with panache and no small amount of humour.” - The Daily Express“He doesn’t cheat, and he doesn’t soften the edges.” - Mary GentleMarvellously inventive. - The Times
