“Paul Tremblay’s stories sneak up on you quietly and then . . . wow! You don’t know what hit you, but you like it. And you want more. Powerful, emotional and unforgettable; these are stories that work their way into your brain and into your heart. Highly recommended.”
–Ann Vandermeer, Hugo Award-winning editor of Weird Tales

“These finely crafted, often oblique stories exhibit formidable analytical intelligence. . .”
–Paul Witcover, Locus Magazine

“These deliciously imaginative stories are grounded in reality but have fantastic sci-fi twists that amplify the anxiety and loneliness felt by humankind.”
The Hipster Book Club 2010 Holiday Gift Guide

“In the Mean Time is at once eerie, disturbing, challenging, and wonderful. Tremblay challenges readers’ sense of security and may not leave any parting consolation—except perhaps to say that we’re all in this together.”
–Jessica Sycz Blanchard, The Hipster Book Club

“If you’re a fan of the likes of Dennis Etchison, Donald Barthelme, Thomas Ligotti, or Kelly Link, you’ll love Paul’s work. In any case, scarf up his books, you can’t go wrong.”
–Tom Piccirilli, author of Every Shallow Cut

“Considering the quality of Tremblay’s short fiction, a collection like In The Mean Time is long overdue. There are a handful of authors which I consider are the “writer’s writer”: Jeffrey Ford, Jeff VanderMeer, Kij Johnson, Mary Robinette Kowal. Paul Tremblay easily belongs to that list, and this book proves it.”
–Charles Tan, Bibliophile Stalker

“[A] selection of diverse tales ranging from the horrific to the heartfelt. . . Through his characterization, subtle dialogue, and intriguing premises, Tremblay succeeds in showing us the truth no matter how ugly or futile the circumstances might seem. . . Tremblay knows how real people think and speak, and that the most important things sometimes lurk hidden in their messages.”
–Chris Hallock, All Things Horror

“When you enter the world of Paul Tremblay most anything can happen, and usually does.”
–Richard Thomas, The Nervous Breakdown

“In The Mean Time is an eerie little collection that will unnerve you with its quiet moments even as it threatens you with society’s end.”
–Joshua Chaplinsky, The Cult

“Tremblay has a skilled way of writing stories that linger in the readers mind. He is able to take characters in out-of-the-ordinary situations and tell their tale in an unusual and relatable way. The stories leave the reader to speculate and wonder about the scenarios, characters, and eventual—but unwritten—outcomes.”

“Paul Tremblay’s In The Mean Time is a dark, heart-twisting collection of short fiction which defies categorization and requires your complete attention. The children, parents, and teachers who inhabit these stories exist in the ways we all exist-through those old historical longings which are rarely answered. Tremblay offers no solutions, but in the end, somehow, we walk away with a greater understanding of ourselves. Or, at the very least, the kind of selves we are but rarely see.”
–Jessica Anthony, author of The Convalesent

“In The Mean Time is a miscellany of voices-witty, wise, weird, assured. These stories push at boundaries, not just within genre; they play alongside the uneasy undercurrents of lives we’d usually call ordinary. Stories to read and read again.”
–Helen Oyeyemi, author of The Opposite House and White is for Witching

“In The Mean Time is a formidable collection, as disquieting as it is beautiful. They shock and they gleam, these stories, and the moods they provoke linger powerfully in the imagination: the dread of those who see the trouble coming and the strange relief of those upon whom it has already fallen.”
–Kevin Brockmeier, author of The Brief History of the Dead

“Rumor has it that the world will end in fire and ice, but then again, if Paul Tremblay is to be believed, it may conclude in preternaturally active plants, amusement parks, sudden brain aneurisms, and silence. In Mean Time, end of the world scenarios brush up against the traumas of more personal apocalypses. The resulting stories are as stressful and quietly traumatic as they are fluidly and lucidly written.”
–Brian Evenson, author of Last Days and Fugue State

“The power of these stories is that you think you’re reading them, that there’s that distance, but really you’re living them, experiencing them, and that’s how you remember them later. Not as something you read, but an event you lived.”
–Stephen Graham Jones, author of Demon Theory and The Ones That Almost Got Away

“Paul Tremblay is a storyteller of the highest order-edgy, sensitive, and fearless.”
–Stewart O’Nan, author of Last Night at the Lobster and Songs for the Missing

“Paul Tremblay creates images of terror and wonder. Lean, mean, and just a bit on the nasty side, he’s a hard-nosed prose stylist with a heavyweight punch. Tremblay is a bona fide contender.”
–Laird Barron, author of The Imago Sequence

“Tremblay more than proves that horror doesn’t have to be disgusting or gruesome—at least initially, and instead employs a more character-driven and subtle approach. If you’re willing to read between the lines, Tremblay’s fiction is one of the most horrific you’ll ever read.”
