"Beneath banal real-life horrors, lurks a dark and grim fairy tale. Through his words and imagery, Mark Wheatley drags the protagonist - and the reader - into the forests of old - wherein anything was possible - even magic. Bravo!"
– Robert Tinnell, FLESH & BLOOD, EZ STREET

“In Bride of the Forest, Mark Wheatley once again shows that he is the master of so many art forms. He delivers prose fiction that is simultaneously hard-edged and horrific on one hand and sensitive and empathic on the other, and he successfully blends it with beautiful spot illustrations and a rich, luscious, vibrant, background of living foliage. The result is a horror mini-masterpiece! To those familiar with his work, this quality and thought-provoking ambiance will come as no surprise, but for those who haven’t yet met this writer-artist-colorist-publisher-recording artist… ah, what a treat to experience his work for the first time!”
