Praise for The Night Marchers
“Braum presents our world through a lens that reveals the wonderful and the horrifying with masterful, elegant prose. The Night Marchers and Other Strange Tales is a stunning debut from a writer who’s been adding to the field of darkly weird literature for years, but who’s name is only now beginning to emerge, and it’s about time!” – Lee Thomas, Lambda Literary Award-winning and Bram Stoker Award-winning author of The German and Butcher’s Road
“From the jungles of South America to the mean streets of New York’s suburbs, his stories wind through territories that feel at once familiar and strange, exotic and dangerous or maybe just dangerously personal.” – David Wellington, author of Monster Island and Positive
“Daniel Braum is a true storyteller. The Night Marchers and Other Strange Tales will satisfy your cravings for the fearsome and the weird. These stories will also make you laugh, cringe and damn near weep. This is such a big-hearted and wide-ranging book.” – Victor LaValle, author of The Ballad of Black Tom
“Faithless women and adventuring lone wolves populate these trippy, fantastical stories of music, magic, and the search for connection. Take some Neil Gaiman, a dash of Kevin Brockmeier, and a whole lot of Long Island garage band, and stir.” – Sarah Langan, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Audrey’s Door
“One of the brightest young stars in the firmament of dark speculative fiction, Daniel Braum is among the best short story writers we’ve encountered. When you start reading The Night Marchers, it’s readily apparent that you’ve discovered something special, possibly even transcendent.” – Shane Douglas Keene, This is Horror
