Souls of Blackbirds, Souls of Reviewers

Agog! Ripping Reads has been reviewed very positively by Rich Horton in Locus. Here's what he had to say about my story, and the collection in general:

Ben Peek's 'The Souls of Dead Soldiers are for Blackbirds, Not Little Boys' is a spooky and intriguing story of a strange war-torn underground realm, and the way a poor family is affected by the invasion of soul-ridden blackbirds.


There's plenty more - this is a pretty well stuffed collection. There are interesting pieces from the likes of Jay Lake, Jeff VanderMeer, and Adam Browne, just to name a few more. The Agog! anthologies have been pretty interesting for some time, but this latest is a step up - one of the better original anthologies of 2006.

Read the whole review.

And I know you're going to want to buy it, so:

Agog! Ripping Reads at Amazon.

Agog! Ripping Reads at Galaxy Books in Sydney.
