"These eighteen entirely new stories have been brought together to celebrate the thirtieth year of Tartarus Press. Representing the best contemporary writing in the fields of the literary strange, supernatural, fantasy and horror."
'This story, with its mad-scientist contraptions of chemical, color, and light, has made me forget everything ... It is a powerful story with a weirdness that somehow exceeds weirdness itself. No mean feat.'
~ British Fantasy Society Karl Edward Wagner Award Winner D.F. Lewis
"The quality of [Inna's] writing is rare. I could go on easily for twenty pages about what makes it strong, and yet feel that at the end of it I might see other strengths that could result in another 20 pages." ~ Eddie Vega, Noir Nation
"Inna’s writing is always lucid and forceful but she’s one of those lucky people who have an extra gear." ~ Matt Cox, Speechwriter for Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger
"Her stories are unsummarizable, and do not exist apart from their style." ~ Jim Krusoe, author of The Sleep Garden
"Inna was hired to help create a marketing deck, messaging outline, website strategy, and creative copy... She has brought a very high level of professionalism, creativity, intelligence, value, and care to these assignments."
-Leandro Tyberg, President of Primestor
"The Devil and the Divine"
"I loved the combination of ... fantasy .. and Clava's desperate desire... Beneath all of these was the uncertainty I had whether Clava was the villain - or the victim." ~ Dr. Sarah L. Uckelman, Professor of Logic and Philosophy of Language at Durham University @ SFFReviews.com
Inna reads a sneak preview of her story, "The Devil and the Divine," on the Outer Dark Podcast.
Lethe Press, Spirits Unwrapped
"Inna Effress’s 'Birthright' features a daughter who murders her father and fillets his body." ~ Publisher's Weekly
