Cheers, Mark and Zed.

I actually lost the quote when I changed email accounts and had a frantic crawl through my computer files to make sure I had a copy stored somewhere.

Hey, well done. Second editions are a sign you've really made an impact.

This is only a limited edition but hopefully it'll remind people that I do actually write stories. Occasionally. When I can be arsed.

Just posting some of the praise that The Mask Behind the Face received. Not that I have a fragile ego in need of constant reassurance you understand ... by the way did I mention that Mask won a British Fantasy Award?

Anyway, here's the quotes, including some that coudn't be fitted on the cover of the new limited edition that goes on sale at WHC 2010.

"Wow, what an impressive story ... ambitious, in fact downright audacious" T.E.D. Klein

"No one can accuse Stuart Young of avoiding the big issues - with insight and verve, he tackles head on the existence of God, the mystery of human consciousness and the transformative effects of psychedelic drugs. Recommended." Mark Chadbourn

"Emotional, brilliant and scary as hell." Brian Keene

"This is horror fiction as it should be: real, confrontational, yet simple, honest and intimate." Gary McMahon

"It's wonderful. A great page-flipper and yet so much more: truly terrifying in its denouement, and that final line is a monster! Like William Hope Hodgson dragged into the latter-day: one of the best I've read in a long while." Gary Fry

"In this brilliant novella Young really cuts loose, positing a series of insights that transcend the questions we as human beings inevitably ask when confronted by the tormenting concepts of infinity and eternity. Mark Samuels

" ... an engaging and well written story, brimful of believable characters, intriguing concepts and a satisfying ambivalence about matters metaphysical." The Third Alternative

Certainly, Mick. Provided I can hold back the huge hoards of customers all swarming around the dealer's table.

Of course, they'll probably only be at the table because they all want their money back.

And just 'cos my ego is still in need of reassurance:

"an interesting mix of religion, philosophy, and horror. Young manages to take a number of disparate elements and weave them into a whole that's quite remarkable." Simon Strantzas

This is old news but there's a quick interview with me up on the Thomas Ligotti message boards if you have absolutely nothing better to do.

If T.E.D. Klein was impressed it must be bloody good!

Congrats Stu!!
