"I like Laimo's writing. He seems to be coming into his own stylistically, and I predict that in less than two years you will see his name more in the pro press than the small press."
Science Fiction Chronicle

"Michael Laimo is able to draw out the tension and suspense until it is almost unbearable."
Edo van Belkom, author of death Drives a Semi, and Writing Horror
