Stephen Hargadon’s stories are strange beasts: wise, witty, and wonderfully dark. Each one is a thing entirely of its own kind, capable of surprising as much in the first reading as in the second and third. Highly recommended. Helen Marshall

… exploring the boozers, tower blocks and transport routes of Manchester as well as recording its voices; he has a good eye and a good ear. Nicholas Royle

… a completely fresh almost quirky prose style that disarms the reader (and editor) no matter how disturbing the underlying themes might be. Andy Cox, editor of Black Static

… prose that is at once a delight to read and also very important to read  A J Dalton
