Praise for Cold Witness

‘An unusual and off-beat story told with great skill’ – David Wailing (author)

‘The lucidity of reality versus dreams and what it means to exist are explored throughout Cold Witness in a way that I found simultaneously chilling and refreshing.’ – Anthony Vicino (author)

‘I was really impressed with the techno-Lovecraft vibe. This is definitely more of a mental thriller, but the stakes are no less exciting.’ – S.E. Lehenbauer (author)
