“Jason Hrivnak’s Mutilation Song is without question a poison but it is also a kind of scripture. This steady incantation of depravity and suffering will not make you a better person but it will, if you find yourself within ten feet of it, entice you to despise all life in an exquisite and elaborate way. . . . You’re gonna love this one.”
—Tony Burgess, author of Pontypool Changes Everything and People Live Still in Cashtown Corners

“Reading like the occult love child of Georges Bataille and David Lynch, Hrivnak’s Mutilation Song is an unnerving and surreal meditation on the demons that haunt us and on the nature(s) of evil. Compelling and unsettling, and definitely worth the read.”
—Brian Evenson, author of Last Days

“Lyrical and hallucinatory, Jason Hrivnak’s Mutilation Song is a sensual atrocity, like The Screwtape Letters for demonomaniacs. Imagine the unholy daisy-chain of C.S. Lewis, J.G. Ballard, and Bret Easton Ellis and you have Mutilation Song.”
—Bracken MacLeod, author of Come to Dust and 13 Views of the Suicide Woods

“First Rule of The Plight House: everyone talk about The Plight House. Hrivnak writes like a crazy angel in this addictive, astonishing debut.”
—Lynn Crosbie, author of Where Did You Sleep Last Night?
