“If there has been a previous fiction anthology devoted to satyrs I’m certainly not aware of it–in fact the existence of such an anthology seems as unlikely as these half humans, half goats themselves. But Songs of the Satyrs revels in such unlikeliness, its authors taking this mythical creature as a challenge to their imaginations to produce a variety of fantasy, horror, and science fiction tales exploring sex, madness, appetite, and ecstasy.”–Steve Rasnic Tem, author of Deadfall Hotel
“Get your Goat on! Songs of the Satyrs offers a host of modern Bacchanalian delights and dangers…because where there are satyrs, you know there’s going to be plenty of sex and intoxication (and strange naked rituals in the forest which don’t bode well for someone). OK, sure, you could visit a college frat for the same experience, but then you’d have to deal with the hangover. And that lingering goatish odor…”–John Everson, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Covenant and NightWhere.
“Like the woodlands party animal who is the book’s subject, so too the stories in this anthology frolic and revel and metamorphosize under the supervision of Editor Aaron J. French. French has assembled 20 diverse stories from an equally diverse gathering of authors, each focusing on a different aspect of the goatish hedonist Pan and his cloven-hoofed followers. There is sex, violence and alcohol, not unexpected in a collection of stories about satyrs. It is neither explicit nor gratuitous, but it’s not a YA book either. All in all, I heartily recommend it.”–Hellnotes
