For Deep Blue:  ” Wilson demonstrates that a horror novel doesn’t need gallons of blood to succeed, that spiritual terror can be even more effective.” – Publisher’s Weekly

“This is an exquisite meditation upon the nature of pain and redemption written with a blues sensibility that rolls through the mind like bleak, resounding chords of dark music. The perfect novel for a hot, sultry night.” – J. L. Comeau – CountGore.com

For This is My Blood:  “Wilson’s prose is smooth and powerful, carrying its allegorical weight with grace. His first novel is one of the most unique vampire stories to appear in recent years, balancing themes of damnation and prophesy against those of faith and redemption.” – Publisher’s Weekly

For The Orffyreus Wheel – ” The book started off with a bang. From page one the book is intense and filled with suspense.” – Blondie – Amazon.com
