Reviews

Praise for the Complete Tales of Jules de Grandin

"Hercule Poirot meets Fox Mulder . . . gruesomely effective, and purists who object to detective stories with paranormal elements will find that the moment each story crosses the border to the supernatural raises genuine shivers."-Kirkus Reviews

"Connoisseurs of pulp adventure . . . will be delighted."-Publishers Weekly

"A collection of wonderfully fun mashups. Seabury Quinn's stories are bloody and action-packed, with the sort of shameless, disreputable charm that characterizes the best of the pulps. Even if there's little that's truly original in his work, his clever assortment of monsters and occult menaces make for tremendously entertaining stories. His admirers have every reason to be thrilled with these comprehensive new collections, and the writer will find new fans among those who enjoy truly weird horror."-Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog

"A fun, spooky trip back to the golden age of weird . . . De Grandin, 'his little blond mustache twitching like the whiskers of an excited cat,' is an exuberant, delightful creation."-Publishers Weekly

"Quite fun; [the stories] move quickly and offer up a tantalizing blend of mystery and the bizarre . . . [Quinn's] characterizations and pacing lead to stories that are quite satisfying."-Kirkus Reviews

"A true 'time lost literary treasure' brought back into print for the benefit of a new generation of appreciative readers, "The Dark Angel" is an extraordinarily entertaining read from cover to cover . . . unreservedly recommended for community library Science Fiction & Fantasy collections."-Midwest Book Review

"Read this and you will get a blast of the past...It's nice to see the old stories gathered up and being shared again. Stories never die as long as there's still one storyteller left."-Book Faerie

"Many of these stories have been unavailable for years. I applaud Night Shade Books for bringing these wonderful stories back into print. I can't wait for Volume Two! GRADE: A"-GeorgeKelley.org
