What they've been saying about Keyhole...
'This is a hugely recommended collection that marks Rees out as a writer capable of spinning tales of vibrant imagination and who is unafraid to peer into strange places' - Wyrd Britain review of Keyhole
'A gem of the uncanny. One of the best story collections I've read in ages . . . the Celtic lyricism was just right as an evocation of place and culture, and wit mingled with the chilling most effectively, casting a unique spell on this reader at least' - author and screenwriter Stephen Volk on Keyhole
'A stunning debut from a major new talent . . . superbly crafted and extraordinary tales' - AmeriCymru review of Keyhole
'His great stories are refreshingly different, he paints a startling and detailed portrait of a world slightly askew, and he knows how to cast a spell with a sentence' - The Short Story review of Keyhole
