A Twist in the Eye

by
Charles Wilkinson

...I can confidently go on to state that A Twist in the Eye is the most exciting collection of weird fiction (or strange fiction, if you will) that I have read for many years. Moreover, I am confident that after the reader has gone through the tales he or she will be as amazed as I am that Charles Wilkinson is not far better known and appreciated in the field...

Throughout the sixteen stories collected in this remarkable book Charles Wilkinson explores themes of place, ritual, identity, death and transmutation with a rare, if not utterly unique, confidence. They are enigmatic but never vague, dreamlike but never illogical, horrifying but only occasionally visceral. Few writers can write ‘weird’ with so convincing a voice.
