Praise for Leanbh Pearson

Leanbh Pearson’s Bluebells is set in an alternate history, post- World War I Australia, where the world is devastated, and society has dissolved. Part dystopian, part paranormal romance, Bluebells is truly unique. Pearson has crafted an alternate world that fuels a reader’s curiosity and keeps you reading…Paranormal romance fans looking for a story with a fascinating setting and a classic tortured vampire will find something to love in this fast-paced, addictive read.

– Belinda McDonald, Reviewer Aurealis – The Australian Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction

We have had a long standing admiration of Pearson’s work…and it was a delight to discover [Three Curses & Other Dark Tales] a fine collection knitted so well together with common themes.

– Gerry Huntman, Managing Director of IFWG Publishing

In the way of great gothic horror, this short novella oozes atmosphere and foreboding.

-Nikky Lee on The Devil and the Loch Ard Gorge
