Early VOLK reviews are in

"...a political, psychological and philosophical allegory of remarkable depth and ambition: the most intellectually provocative horror novel of the twenty-first century." 

That is a pull-quote, from Alex Good's review of VOLK: A Novel of Radiant Abomination (read the full review here) that went live at The Toronto Star on Sept. 29. It is more specifically, a hell of a pull-quote. I saw that very early in the morning it appeared, a week ago as of this writing, and it is one of four very good reviews for the book that've come out since its publication in September. So far, there have been no bad reviews. Of course, that could change at any moment, b
ut for the time being, please let a happy and very relieved old hack bask, and pitch his new novel in the best possible light. 

Here's a run-down of the other three reviews.

These are all very good, and get my heart-rate and respiration back to normal in the nicest possible way.  The reviews, and the fact that coterminously, Amazon seems to have copies in warehouse in both its U.S. and Canada iterations (here, and here).
