Skull Full of Kisses is “Disturbingly Brilliant!”

The Sci-Fi Guys have posted a review of my short story collection from Graveside Tales Books:

“8.5 out of 10…I’ve read this collection five times in the last three months, and each time I’ve finished the book I’ve found myself stunned…a few collections have stunned me in the past, but every collection pales in comparison to Michael West’s Skull Full of Kisses…disturbingly brilliant!”

You can read the full review here.
