Author Nick Milligan reviewed Whisper for SFFWorld.com, spotlighting many of our contributors as standout stories including Jason Andrew’s Fear and Loathing in Insmouth…, David Tallerman’s My Friend Fishfingers…, Jonathan Sharp’s Nation of Disease, Lee Finney’s Give Me That Old Time Religion, and Charles Black’s Horrorscope.
As for Josh Finney’s Death Wore Greasepaint he had this to say,
The disturbed clown working his television studio audience of children into a primal frenzy – and the horror that follows – are the most vivid and memorable from this accomplished collection.

Innsmouth Magazing recently reviewed Whispers from the Abyss and what a review we received! The reviewer, Allen Griffin really appreciated the short story format and had this to say about the content…
While I would say this is a solid anthology front to back, there are, of course, standouts. The first that comes to mind is the white-knuckle hell ride of A.C. Wise’s “Chasing Sunset” and Nick Mamatas’ story by way of interrogation, “Hideous Interview with Brief Man.” Both stories capture a deep intensity and manage to probe the darkest regions of Lovecraftian fiction. Also notable, Silvia Moreno-Garcia’s “The Sea, Like Glass Unbroken,” a tale of a lover scorned and a creature from the depths.

In his honor, from October 24 till November 1st, 01Publishing will donate all proceeds from the sales of Whispers to the family. Please visit Amazon.com to download your copy for the Kindle.
Nicholas will be greatly missed.
