“[E]asily one of the best collections by a single author I have ever read.”
Black Gate

“Throughout the book, I appreciated Stueart’s dry, often dark, situational humor, and his skillful, sympathetic characterizations. The stories were remarkably varied, more so than I typically find with single-author short story collections. Some Christian readers will be uncomfortable with some of the material; but if you didn’t think anything in the Mysterion anthology went too far, you’re unlikely to feel overly alarmed by anything here (the reverse is probably true as well). And, although few of the selections deal explicitly with Christian or Biblical themes, those that do make Stueart an author well worth following for those interested in contemporary speculative fiction in this area.”
