Interviews/Guest Posts


“[Roman] . . . has created a pulp novel with genuine depth and wisdom, insight and consummate skill. It’s not capital-l Literary, but it cannily bridges both worlds.”
The National Post

“. . . Cross’s tale sweeps you up with its gallows humour, whether you’re revelling in the pleasures of two-fisted, angel-punching action or the cleverly rendered language.”
Quill & Quire

“[The Mona Lisa Sacrifice] never lets the reader pause for breath. . . .”
Publishers Weekly

“The author of The Warhol Gang and Please (writing as Peter Darbyshire) takes urban fantasy to a different level with this tale of conspiracy and confession.”
Library Journal

The Dead Hamlets resembles something written by Neil Gaiman with its somewhat mystical imagery, and at other times it reads as a full-blown work of bizarro fiction.”
The Examiner

“[Roman]’s big dumb fun book is actually whip smart.”
The Vancouver Sun
