"Another set of remarkable Black Static stories" Des Lewis (read the full review)
"This is a stunningly good tale ... about two touristing families driving through Normal Valley who happen to stop for a bit of fun horse riding at a seemingly normal farm. It's a trip that comes to quite a terrifying end. At the farm lives a family that are part of the valley, of its history and landscape and its folklore and mythology in a profound way that has terrible repercussions for everyone involved. I love the way this story captures the family dynamics at play among children and adults, both among the visitors and the locals, and I love how folklore and old tales are woven into the narrative throughout. There's a steely tension running through the story, and every twist of the plot tightens that tension until the breaking point" Maria Haskins on Upland Wildlife
"Holy crap. One of my favourite things I've read in a long time. I'm totally blown away. Great voice, terrifying historical elements, grim fairytale parts, myths, monsters, horses, snakes. It's got it all" Jonathan Cosgrove on Upland Wildlife
"Upland Wildlife is superb. Between that and Fatal Memory (Black Static 76), I now consider myself a fan of Rhonda Pressley Veit. Excellent writer" WA Parkin
