“Inspiring and touching in many ways, DIAPHANOUS is a wonderful introduction to how the screws can get turned to a normal family in an every day world…” — Steven L. Shrewsbury, Author of Stronger than Death, Hawg, and Thrall

“A tale full of creeping dread and suspense, Diaphanous is a cool retro throwback to 50’s and 60’s creature horror. But don’t let that fool you, Roy C. Booth and R. Thomas Riley have crafted a tale that is the future of horror.” — John Grover, Author of Feminine Wiles, A Beckoning Of Shadows and Angels, Ashes and Alchemy.

“It’s no easy task to pull off a monster story without a little bit of camp creeping in, but Booth and Riley have done it…and if the suspense doesn’t get your goosebumps going, the wicked critters on display here surely will. DIAPHANOUS is a fine way for any monster fan to KILL an hour or so.” — Nick Cato, Horror/Comedy/Bizarro Author and Publisher
