Part 1950s noir novel and part spellbinding fantasy, Echoes sets the banality of evil against the milieu of a desolate, small-town life, a battle that is both intricate and fundamental, both for humanity and for echoes, the offspring of evil come to rectify the past. Smith takes the reader into a world that is both familiar yet mysterious, and one in which evil is all too real. Roger Arthur Smith’s prose combines the tension of the old noir writers with the imagination of modern fantasy writers. The result is a story that is both delightfully eerie and terrifyingly familiar, and the further you delve into it, the harder it is to escape. —William Todd Seabrook, editor of the Cupboard Pamphlet and the author of This Semi-Perfect Universe and The Genius of J. Robert Oppenheimer
