Ginger Nuts of Horror Review of THE SKELETON MELODIES

Ginger Nuts of Horror contributor Daisy Lyle provides a thorough assessment of The Skeleton Melodies. Clearly, Daisy has invested a lot of time analyzing this collection of stories, and I’m supremely grateful for this thoughtful examination.

The overall impression left by [The] Skeleton Melodies is of an author who is definitely going places. Some of his prose could do with a bit of pruning, but it’s a polished collection covering a wide variety of fears ancient and modern, and I will be watching Smith’s development as a writer with interest.” Daisy Lyle
