"Be careful: reading Eric Schaller's collection, Voice of the Stranger, opens a door to the fairy tale realm of the mythically eerie and meaningful...one that you may not find as easy to close." - Will Ludwigsen

"Fans of Angela Carter's rewriting of fairy tales will find particular delight in this skillfully written, if grisly, collection." - Kirkus Reviews
