New 5* Review for Cabaret of Dread

Kevin Bufton put on his dancing shoes and re-entered the CABARET OF DREAD, where he tipped his hat and paid tribute to my first collection of horror.

He was kind enough to offer a generous five star review which you can read at his excellent review site, THE BLOODY, BLOODY BOOK REVIEW as well as Amazon where you can, of course, buy the book!

Here's a little excerpt.

"...she [Lily] paints with broad and sweeping colours, splattering her literary canvas with words that she has selected with such precision as to evoke the bleakness of her uniquely grim vision. It is an exercise in grandiosity, as if Books of Blood era Clive Barker went out for drinks with Trent Reznor and Ken Russell and decided to keep a journal of the occasion."

"Cabaret of Dread remains a beautiful and hideous thing, and is all the better for the re-reading."


Lily Childs is a writer of horror, esoteric, mystery and chilling fiction.

If you see her dancing outside in a thunder storm - don't try to bring her in. She's safe.
