"...a brilliant and stunningly original work, by far the best novel I read in 2008." 
Alternative Reel 

"as authentic as they come, experimental without trying to be intentionally obscure, dark without making you doubt humanity, smart and energetic. In short, it’s great writing." 
"’s about obsession, self-negation, love, even God (“The Everything”), making Broken Bulbs an entirely unique take on a subject. It’s a science fictional, hard-boiled, poetic vision of drug addiction and hamsters (read it!) A great addition to a genre that has never existed before." 
Self-publishing Review 

"...this slim volume is the bastard child of Memento and William S Burroughs, absolutely not for the faint of heart nor for anyone seeking a nice, simple beach read." 
Jason Pettus, The Chicago Center for for Literature and Photography 

"An existentialist’s dream, the author has dug in deep and laid bare the raw emotion so candidly that we can actually feel the futility, the desperation, and the humour." 

"Philip Dick would be proud." 
POD People 

"...the absolute perfect spot-on portrait of the mind of an addict." 
"The first chapter alone is a nauseating churn of short choppy staccato sentences, random thoughts and actions, that read like beat poetry at a slam." 
"The whole thing is filled with crazy quips and one liners worthy of a high lighter so you can memorize and use them later." 
The LL Book Review 

"...strangely complex and fascinating."
