"...a love story/sci-fi/fantasy/horror book that will pull you in right from the very
beginning... definitely, DEFINITELY give this book a try.."
- Marie B, PMGGTS
"This is not a comforting book. But man, it was a good ride getting to the end.
I'm looking forward to the next time Grant takes a few shots at our collective psyches."
- Eric Burns, Websnark.com
"I haven't been so stylishly creeped-out since Lovecraft. Lethe
is nuanced, highly-charged writing with a sense of impending and inevitable
horror made all the more compelling by the crisply-realised everyday humanity
of the protagonists. James has produced writing of the first class that evokes
the shivery thrill of the campfire ghost stories you remember from childhood."
- Andrew Dennis, 1635: The Cannon Law
"James Grant is a prime example of the new breed of independent writer:
resourceful, determined and self-made. He writes without compromise."
- Cameron Rogers, The Music of Razors
"James Grant is a writer whose work is typically graphic, explicit, and
extreme. In Lethe, he delivers a slowly-building mystery that sacrifices
none of his usual grit. Lethe tells a tale of horror and loss you'll
not soon forget."
- Michelle Belanger, Psychic Dreamwalking
