Summary

Fans of cosmic horror will have much to sup on in these eight tales. The supernatural intrudes upon a wedding; a pier becomes the site of tragedy; a collapsed building is only the start of the nightmare for those trapped in the ruins; a scientist makes the discovery of a lifetime, only to find out that what he’s unearthed has dire consequences not only for himself, but for all of mankind.

Outstanding

Beneath a Pale Sky is a flawless collection of literary horror that manages to be emotionally complex yet unpretentious, cinematic yet grounded and beautiful yet foreboding. I adored each story and loved every moment; this is an outstanding collection of memorable stories and I give it my highest recommendation.

Lots and f surprises!!

Enjoyed the book very much! I read a lot and find it hard to be surprised and these stories delivered on the twist you don’t see coming! One made me cry and I think that speaks for itself. Looking forward to more from Phillip.

Probably would have been good, but...

The first story had me interested in the characters and how the drama was going to play out, but the narrator is not good. There's a particularly pretentious quality to everything he says that just does not fit this type of work. He'd probably be fine reading off a set of Ted Hughes poems, but not this. The payoff of the first story wasn't really enough to make me want to sit through eight more hours of _that_ voice speaking in _that_ way. I may end up picking up a written copy to see what happens with "Wheel."

Horrible delivery of what might be good stories…

I should have been paid to listen to the two I forced myself to endure. Flat delivery, pauses at the wrong moments… of stories that may have been ok. The author should feel wronged.

By the book and read it.
