Home Before Dark: The Collected Cedar Hill Stories, Volume 2

Review Excerpts

Home Before Dark is superb... establishes once again this author as one of the major, current literary voices even beyond the limits of the horror genre."
— Mario Guslandi, Emerald City

"Braunbeck is an extraordinary author of dark literature, not just dark fiction. His style is crystal-clear, polished but straightforward, and his attitude towards his own characters is that of a deep empathy. This is a splendid collection that you shouldn't miss, and praise to Paul Miller's Earthling Publications not only for publishing the book but also for producing a very elegant, attractive, perfect volume."
Agony Column Book Reviews

"[Braunbeck's] Cedar Hill stories are the best example of his inimitable skill. I simply can't get over how utterly true these stories feel; more so than anything I've read in a long time. Very few of the contrivances that often distract from the experience of good writing appear here. The stories in Home Before Dark are pure, as if they — to borrow a cliche — are being told through Braunbeck, and not simply by him. You owe it to yourself to visit Cedar Hill. Just be happy you don't live there."
