NEWS! 'Engaging & darkly amusing collection' - new review of Smoke House & Other Stories. 'When we talk about the writer’s imagination, we sometimes suggest there’s a sliding scale, that some are more ample than others. If that is indeed the case, then writer Matthew G. Rees certainly operates at the upper end of things.' For more see Reviews page.

On Matthew G. Rees -
'Rees is fully in control of that particular gift of authors of fantastic stories, which consists of placing banal objects, or characters, in situations where they are at the same time innocent and threatening.... On other occasions, his stories are wonderfully weird and funny at the same time' - Guido Eekhaut, author of Absinthe, reviewing Rees's story collection Keyhole
On Matthew G. Rees -

What they've been saying about Keyhole...
'a superb collection'
'a tour de force'
'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
