Nightmare TalesNightmare Tales; hard cover; 93 pages; Borealis Press

These tales are as elusive and disquieting as a nightmare, as substantial as fear on a dark night.  Each one elevates an authentic rendering of King's County, Nova Scotia into an horrific world of the imagination.  They echo with the resonance of folk tales, and yet are superbly crafted in the most lyrical of prose; timeless, but with the immediacy of the best experimental fiction.  Freiberg has created a haunting masterpiece, of no less value for its being unlike anything else in our literature.  - John Moss.
