"R.B. Russell’s The Dark Return of Time . . . is a short thriller that opens in a shop selling second-hand books in Paris. What could be better?"

- Michael Dirda, The Washington Post

"A beautifully written and very clever work of art."

-Peter Tennant, Black Static

"Russell's smart, dark novel is thrilling, sensuous and memorable. It will write itself into your mind, and afterwards, you may well ponder if there is actually much of a difference between thinking — and reading."

- Rick Kleffel, The Agony Column

"Russell is one of those quiet conjurors whose uncanny moments are often three-quarters-hidden behind a slatted blind of noonday normalcy."

- Mark Andresen, The Pan Review

"[The Dark Return of Time] is a real pleasure to read due to the elegant narrative style, the allusive and disturbing atmosphere and the author's ability to question reality . . . "

- Mario Guslandi, Gumshoe Review

"Die letzten Seiten sind eine tour de force mit Verfolgungsjagden, Fluchten und die zahlreichen twists and turns erinnern mich an das Ende von Terry Gilliams brillianter Dystopie Brazil."

- M.G., African Paper

"I am drawn satisfyingly into this book’s intriguingly, deceptively simple-prosed plot . . . A blend of the page-turning and the lingering."

- D.F. Lewis, Real-Time Reviews

"While not a supernatural tale within the strict definition of the term, this short novel offers the reader a world that is slightly out of kilter, if not quite that of a nightmare. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes intellectual thrillers with a touch of the outré."

- David Longhorn, Supernatural Tales
