"John Foster doesn’t write horror stories—he writes terror stories, the kind that get under your skin and stay there. Crack open Baby Powder and prepare for a lot of sleepless nights!" ~Nicholas Kaufmann, author of In the Shadow of the Axe

"A single John Foster story has enough chills to freeze a tub of water. An entire book jammed full of them can freeze the Hudson River as solid as an airport runway. He packs dread and foreboding into everything he writes, so much that you’re almost afraid to turn the page, but you damn well know you will. If you read only one single author collection this year, Baby Powder should be it." ~Shane Douglas Keene, Shotgun Logic

"John C. Foster adds to the current Weird Fiction Renaissance with Baby Powder and Other Terrifying Substances, a tough-as-nails collection of short stories that deftly explore elements of cosmicism, science fiction horror, creepshow bizarre, unholy retribution, human cruelty, and post-apocalyptic blight with a trim, almost Noir flare and a thoughtful eye. Foster is not just one to read, he’s one to watch, as the secret is out and the ascent is on." ~ T.E. Grau, author of The Nameless Dark and They Don't Come Home Anymore
