Museum of the Weird by Amelia Gray.. Jarring and strange, these stories will occasionally amaze. Nice to encounter an original voice who will haunt you as you rummage in the back of the closet in search of this year's Halloween costume.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"The opening sentence of Amelia Gray’s “Museum of the Weird” — “One morning, I woke to discover I had given birth overnight” — could serve as a metaphor for the creation of a certain type of story. While many stories come into being through intense authorial diligence and cogitation, others spring into existence in an instant, discharging themselves onto the page almost by magic. ."

The NY Times

"What could be mistaken for sameness is instead a purposeful vision, relentless in its inquisitive march along the fringes of human solitude. A veteran of the small presses … Gray deserves greater recognition.."
