"Punk, in a good way: often over the top, unafraid to be noisy and have a good time." - Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
"Paul is my kind of writer: unforgettable, yes, but more importantly, uncategorizable. He approaches all genres with the same smart sensibility, combining the logical extrapolations of SF, the free reign of imagination in fantasy, and the dark anatomical sensibility of horror. Plus, he's wall-to-wall fun. THin of it as rock-and-roll fiction." - Rick Kleffel, "The Agony Column," California Public Radio
"Unforgettable is an excellent genre collection that should not be overlooked. *****" - Midwest Book Review
"It's all here: imagination, serious purpose, honesty, playfulness – even fearlessness." - Eric Greene, author of "Planet of the Apes" as American Myth, from his Foreword
"This compilation is the 'unforgettable' party we all want to attend. Allow host Paul McComas to stretch your mind, make you laugh out loud, and keep you thinking long after you've read the last page."
Joy Ward, author of Haint
"You'll be hooked, shocked, and amused by this vast, delightful offering from one of our country's most versatile and endearing artists. In short, Unforgettable – is."
