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 (author of Gifts for the One Who Comes After)

… 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 (author of First Novel)

… 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
