"There's something about the rain that draws us to it. It's dark, and its cold wet fingers draw heat from us like feeding leeches. We run from it and rush toward it in alternating breaths, between layered moments reminding us of the cold of death and vibrancy of life.
Christopher Conlon's newest book, Lullaby for the Rain Girl (Dark Regions Press) achieves a similar state. It is a melancholy walk in the rain, a blanket of sadness that somehow affirms life even as death is approaching. The result is a beautifully woven ghost story about old lives, old loves, and past regrets, and about new possibilities, new love, and moving on with the business of living... This book, like the rain itself, is cold, reflective, and moody. And like the rain, it ultimately leaves the reader with a deep sense of satisfied warmth. Highly recommended for anyone looking for work of substance in the horror field, Lullaby for the Rain Girl delivers."

" An amazingly engaging storyteller, Conlon presents the reader with characters so real, raw, flawed, and provocative, one can’t help staying along with them through to the quietly powerful end. At times wry, elegiac, curious, eerie, mysterious, and luminous, he writes a literary novel for the mainstream as well as genre reader."
