As one reviewer noted: “Tom Henighan . . . seems to take his inspiration from all points of the imaginative compass. Henighan's use of the short story form . . . shows great versatility [and] the thematic concerns of these stories are also wide-ranging.” The author has published some twenty books in print form, including short fiction, with publishers in the U.S., Canada, and Britain.
