Nightmare 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.
