"Richard Lupoff's stories are singularly clever, inventive, well-crafted and involving. He can put on different styles as easily as some of us change suits, and all of them fit him exquisitely."-DEAN R. KOONTZ "Every story offers a smile-and a surprise. You just cannot predict where Lupoff is going to lead you!" -R. L. STINE "The glimpse of discipline, of careful researching, of intense purpose, of the need to shape and polish, reshape and repolish, which he gives another writer will make that writer take a very hard look at his own bad habits."--THEODORE STURGEON Although Richard A. Lupoff is well known for his mystery and science fiction stories, Dick is an equally capable spinner of tales of fantasy and horror. VISIONS offers the reader a wide range of stories: chronicles of the psychic detective Abraham ben Zaccheus, Lovecraftian tales, and other tales of fantasy and horror showcasing Dick's boundless imagination, and his skills as a masterful storyteller.

Richard A. Lupoff's fantasy and horror compilation Visions leads off with four previously unpublished stories, three about Abraham ben Zaccheus, an early 20th-century San Francisco psychic detective based (per Peter S, Beagle's introduction) on the great short story writer Avram Davidson, the fourth featuring Abrham's contemporary S.F. cop granddaughter Rebekkah. Though supernatural detection is not my usual cup of tea, Lupoff's style wins the day, particularly in the marvelous voice of Irish Watson John O'Leary --The Jury Box - Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine
