"This book spoke to me on such a deep and personal level. There are eleven diverse stories here and they take us on self-journeys without our realizing it. These thought provoking and disturbing stories deal with horror, something that we believe to be far away from us. What we might not realize is that each of us has horror buried deep within himself. I am completely in command when I tell you that you must read this book."
"There really should be a warning sign before you take a look into this looking glass. The Looking Glass: Tales of Light and Dark by H.L. Sudler is a collection of eleven thought provoking and deeply disturbing and visceral short stories. These stories are gritty, honest, and in-your-face. This is a book that will stay with you for some time and touch you to the very core of your soul. Highly recommend and totally unforgettable."
"The love of horror movies permeates the stories in The Looking Glass, and werewolves, ghosts, rodents, mausoleums, and murderous psychopaths further set the tone. However, Sudler digs us a deeper grave. Creepy tales cleverly delve into damaging social hierarchies, a corrupt legal infrastructure that breeds bias, the pain inflicted upon us by religion, and the racism and homophobia ingrained into our moral fiber. Our trust in love and the people we think we know best is challenged. Time travel becomes a mechanism for a timely exploration of how history is doomed to repeat itself unless we learn from the past. And as we journey through these stories, it becomes clearer that we all have the ability to choose humanity…or monstrosity. But the most shocking twist of all? This isn’t a glass you can look through. It is mirrored glass urging us to see ourselves—a reflection of who we are, who we should be, and who we could be if we weren’t dead set on being so damn scary to each other ."
