Here are two new reviews I came across of my story “The Disciple”:
From Doug Bolden’s review of Dead But Dreaming:
One of my favorites. While it seems to be setting up for one style, a delightfully dark twist pulls it all together. Its Mythos creation feels both appropriately cosmic, dangerous, and weird, with what horror there is being more in having perspective realigned. In this way, it is possibly one of the more authentic Lovecraftian tales.
From Michael Tresca’s review of Dead But Dreaming for RPG Examiner:
David Barr Kirtley manages to do what so many have failed: He creates a story about an arcane professor that is horrific without being cheesy. Too many Mythos authors cast Miskatonic University as a college seething with kooks casting spells, but Kirtley cleverly turns the usual crazy professor plot on its ear. 4 out of 5 stars.
