"...offers the genre-required chills and atmosphere, but most of all it is filled with pathos, provoking more tears than screams. [TEIG O'KANE AND THE CORPSE] is one of Wicked Lit's best efforts." - Steve Biodrowski, Hollywood Gothique

...not unlike a fairytale adventure—only this one has more zombie overtones…reveals a unique and poignant truth about one’s legacy and memory—even as it may be worn away by the passage of time.” - Daniel Lam, Westcoaster

"...The ending brings such a poignant point home about moving on." - Sabina Gaves, Nightmarish Conjurings
