Review:

The best stories are laterally-minded flights of fancy... they nudge at the secrets contained in hidden worlds and parallel universes. It's this precise restraint that tantalises * Herald * Writers known and less so who've each managed to bring some fresh hell to MES's already weird and frightening world... a triumph -- Stuart Maconie * Word Magazine * Excellent * Independent on Sunday * Defiantly uncompromising... successfully evokes the spirit of The Fall * Daily Telegraph * Innovative and imaginative * Time Out * A witty, dark and often surreal anthology that's as enjoyably anarchic as Smith himself * Metro *
