Here are his kind words:
I also really enjoyed the style of short scenes within chapters, though there were a lot of characters to keep straight. The author does skip between the characters quite frequently, making some of the book a little hard to follow, but eventually it all comes together and the horror of what's going on hits you full force.
It starts with a truly depraved criminal entertaining himself by shooting people who are driving on the freeway, and goes from there with twists and turns you don't expect. The supernatural aspects were scary and the ending and the last few chapters were truly chilling. Overall, I loved the vivid way it was all described and the author knows how to create a mood.
This is not an easy book where the author spoon-feeds the reader all the information, but fans of horror and those looking for something different to entertain themselves will find The House Beyond the Hill an excellent read. The book is available as an eBook or a trade paperback and I flew through my e-copy.

Or to take another example:
Unlike most of the other Filamental Emblems, which range from six to eight inches across and are crocheted from three strands of sewing thread, this one was intended to be large...cosmically large--or at least as close to that as I could get with a crochet hook and yarn.
Mounted, it is nearly four feet across. Each distinctive round represents one of the seven classical crystalline spheres that compose the cosmos--the center being Earth, and the outermost being the Realm of God. When all of the crystalline spheres move in concord to the will of God, it was believed, each would rub against its neighbors and set up a vibration. When all seven vibrated properly, the result was a chord, the "Music of the Spheres."
Such an image is elegant and sophisticated, concrete and ethereal, as I hoped the final Emblem would also be.
