“Inspired with the kernel of a unique idea, Ottone spins a fun narrative that could have turned out corny, but in his deft hands, it pops off the page.”
— Michael Jess Alexander, award-winning author of Boarded Windows, Dead Leaves and Conjured Darkness: Six Macabre Tales

“Robert Ottone’s talent for creating iconic monsters is on full display in Curse of the Cob Man—a delicious, small-town horror story with a wonderfully bizarre supernatural entity at its core.”
— Luis Paredes, author of Out on a Limb

“You always know a good horror book when it begins a couple different ways. One, it begins on Halloween night and two, it’s followed by an unusual murder. This a horror lover’s dream, or dare I say, a nightmare?”
— Carl Paolino, Comic Book Kid Publishing, author of the Spontania graphic novel series


“Robert P. Ottone’s work evokes a sense of dreadful wonder that leaves the reader yearning for more. His fiction lingers with the reader, the way great horror should.”
— Curtis M. Lawson, author of The Envious Nothing and Black Heart Boys Choir

“Rob Ottone is a talented writer with a cinematic imagination and a fine ear for dialogue. His dark stories have charm, originality, and an understated humor, and his dialogue is just about word-perfect.”
— Josh Gidding, author of Failure: An Autobiography

“The Vile Thing We Created reads like What To Expect When You’re Expecting as written by Ira Levin, full of plenty of prenatal panic and postpartum terrors.”
— Clay McLeod Chapman, author of Ghost Eaters and Whisper Down the Lane
