“Ben Eads’ CRACKED SKY is what you would get if Pink Floyd had a ménage trois with Stephen King’s Regulators and Kathy Koja’s Cipher…and then took a hit of acid.” – John M. McIlveen, Bram Stoker © Award-Nominated author of Hannawhere.
“This guy knows his horror, and pulls off the deft trick of utilizing genre conventions while simultaneously adding his own unique twists to the mix. Get in on the ground floor of Eads’ work, folks. His career is destined to be a long one.” — Kealan Patrick Burke, Bram Stoker © Award-winning author of The Turtle Boy, Kin, and Jack & Jill.
“Do yourself a favor, put BEN EADS up on your fridge, underline the name, then buy everything he writes. The quality of his writing is first rate.” — Gene O’Neill, THE CAL WILD CHRONICLES, AT THE LAZY K
“Eads created a sick and dark dream world. Reading it was like visiting the most twisted of Wonderlands. Eads’ other world is genuinely horrifying, and even more disturbing than Joe Hill’s Christmasland. That’s truly a messed up and lovely thing to see.” — Mercedes M. Yardley, author of The Bone Angel Trilogy and Pretty Little Dead Girls.
“Taking some inspiration from King but very much his own writer, Eads brings the reader a compelling story of a family torn apart by events beyond their control.” — James Everington, This is Horror
“The first half of the story reminded me of early Gary Braunbeck, then the second delves into some serious dark fantasy and even bizarro territory (despite NOT being a bizarro novella).” Nick Cato – The Horror Fiction Review
“Absolutely brilliant. The final showdown will distort your very existence.” – Joe Mynhardt – Crystal Lake Publishing
