  • A fun and illustrated collection of fictional biographies of some comical characters from Western Massachusetts.


  • Very fun if too brief faux compendium of the witches who terrorize d Western Massachusetts throughout its history with accompanying art work Would love to see an expanded version of this.


  • A short and playful biography collection with some interesting characters This being my first read from Matthew M Bartlett, it will serve as a foreword to Gateways to Abomination, which I picked up today All pieces are complimented by great illustrations from Alex Fienemann.


  • This is but a small teaser, worth the perusal, horrifying in its own right, but a fraction of the sheer terror that Mr Bartlett and his pen and his benighted town of Leeds have to share with you You should have it and read and enjoy it, and then get the rest as well.


  • An excellent companion book for the work of Matthew M Bartlett I love stuff like this, that adds to the history and mythology of a well crafted world.


  • In this interesting short chapbook from Matthew M Bartlett, he provides the reader a compilation of page length biographies of some the interesting folks in Massachusetts Accompanied with each biography is an illustration by Alex Fienemann whose illustrations are wonderful and compliment each vignette of the biographies.This could be read as either a great afterword to Mr Bartlett s amazing book Gateways to Abomination Collected Short Fiction or as a tasty little forword to that book, for those [...]


  • As with his previous works, Bartlett here demonstrates a particular felicity for choosing exactly the right phrase the perfect word, in fact at exactly the right moment to give his short vignettes and sketches a depth of field much greater than the page count would suggest was possible The world that Bartlett illuminates in brief flashes is vast and sinister and beckoning I am eager to see .


  • Containing fictional biographies of various people who inhabit ed Leeds and the outskirts of it, The Witch Cult in Western Massachusetts, in the same vein as the Anne Gare book, serves as a companion piece, adding to the dark, twisted Mythos that Bartlett has created Here, we get some backstories to some of the colorful, wicked, and unbalanced people we only vaguely experienced in Gateways to Abomination We learn about Father Ezekial Shineface, a rogue priest whose sermons go against all that i [...]


  • If i d known how slender this expensive book was i wouldn t have bought it but i m so pleased to have it amongst my cherished possessions despite this disappointment I have spent a most wonderful hour in the company of a mad and twisted wordsmith whose turn of phrase is a joy to experience and whose imagination is so sharply disturbed and dark that one actually experiences ripples of delight down the spine Once again i am left hungering for so much volume from this warped genius and thankfully [...]


  • Originally appeared on my website, the Conqueror Weird The Witch Cult in Western Massachusetts features thirteen one page entries, each about a dark figure who turns to occult forces Not all of them have to do with Leeds, but the ones that do expand upon the WXXT mythology For example we learn about old Anne Gare, who runs an ominous bookshop in the twisted town, while we also learn about Virginia Willaby, whose charming home was host to a horrifying event known as Black Thanksgiving It also fe [...]


  • A welcome, though teasingly slim, companion volume to Bartlett s Gateways to Abomination Consisting of one page character profile vignettes each accompanied by an illustration , I was particularly struck by how Bartlett managed to humanize these villains with swift economy And regardless of length, the effect is, I think, no less illuminating and I hope betrays some of the depth of world building at work with future explorations of the haunted Leeds milieu And I don t mean to overstate the brevi [...]


  • This is definitely only recommended if you ve already read Gateways to Abomination , as there are a lot of tie ins to the mythology there and a few references that will be fairly meaningless without context In saying that, there is plenty here to enjoy regardless, though it definitely is a companion piece to Gateways and Creeping Waves rather than a standalone experience in my opinion As a review of the actual content I d say a 3 1 2 star would be accurate, but if you re a Matthew Bartlett fan [...]


  • Matthew Bartlett has rapidly become one of my favourite writers just based on this and Gateways to Abomination The world he has created is fascinating, weird, horrific and engrossing This book added to the mythology of Leeds and the cast of unusual characters in a humorous and unsettling way I would highly recommend this, especially if you ve read Gateways to Abomination.


  • Fun companion to Bartlett s substantial work, this is much than a few character sketches slapped together Each character profile works like a self contained , and satisfying, piece of flash fiction My only quibble is that it s a pretty slim volume and, thus, is for completists and those already familiar with Bartlett s excellent stories.


  • When the worst thing you have to say about a book is that you wish that there were of it you find yourself recommending it to friends Especially those in Western Mass.
