Vastarien, Vol 6, Issue 1, including Christa Carmen’s contribution,
“Echoes of a Former You”: “… fraught with a woman’s nightmare in her
own home after the horror performed on her outside it—to describe
which nightmare would ‘spoil’ it. Suffice to say, it’s a painfully
heartfelt attritional journey of windows and doors in a world that
is stitched with Ligotti.”
Christa Carmen blurbs Tony LaMalfa’s debut: "With
Tony LaMalfa has crafted a pair of novellas so well-versed in the
oeuvre of Lovecraft, he had me convinced—at times—I was reading an
undiscovered work by Lovecraft himself. But Forbidden Knowledge is
far too dynamic, unsettling, and utterly original to be anything
other than the work of an explosive new talent, a talent whose prose
burns like a white-hot star from beyond the fourth dimension.
Lovecraft scholars and general horror fans alike will delight in
this magnetic, magical tome."
