"The recipe for this novella is straightforward: Make a roux of nature, the supernatural, and the unnatural cruelty of men. Add the high drama of the Gothic. Stir in the myth of Frankenstein's sad monster and season to taste with ancient African wisdom. Simmer over a low flame and voila! "Le Griffon" is served up, steamy and thick."
"Sterling Houston is a totally interesting thinker, a wizard with story and scene, a generous-hearted, well-lit, authentic original. How luck we are to have him!"
