PRAISE FOR THE OSTERMANN HOUSE (click on the icon to read the full review)

“The weird goings-on that begin to pile one upon another in this tale can almost be logically explained—until perhaps they can’t—unless you buy into some scientific theories that feel a bit like Einstein meets The X-Files...Characters are drawn sharply and genuinely. Dialogue sounds natural during off-the-cuff banter and realistic when people must suddenly react to bizarre situations. Prose is used deftly as well.”
