"Bending to Earth is full of tales of women walled-up in rooms, of vengeful or unforgetting dead wives, of mistreated lovers, of cruel and murderous husbands . . . 'The De Grabrooke Monument', a previously uncollected story by Charlotte Riddell [ . . . ] is a significant coup for Giakaniki and Showers."

-Darryl Jones, -The Irish Times

"Showers and Giakaniki have done a splendid job of collecting such a wide range of tales, and anyone who likes weird fiction will find a lot to entertain them . . . Here you will find fairy tales, ghost stories, horror, and much else that is Gothic and, yes, strange."

-David Longhorn, -Supernatural Tales

"Bending to Earth is a surprising, extraordinary anthology featuring twelve uncanny and supernatural stories from the nineteenth century, the authors of which are all Irish and all female . . . A highly recommended, extremely enjoyable anthology."

-Mario Guslandi, -British Fantasy Society

"Bending to Earth is a mix of superb, uncanny tales featuring (among other things) wandering spirits, tortured souls of both the earthly and ethereal sort, dream-like visions, and Irish ghost lore I can imagine listening to while seated beside a fire in an otherwise darkened and quiet room while outside a storm is raging and the wind is howling like the proverbial banshee."
