'Dancer in Darkness is a distinct three-way collaboration - the tragic story of the murdered Giovanna d'Aragona, Duchess of Amalfi, as advised in Renaissance Italian resources, then in The Duchess of Malfi, John Webster's masterpiece of Jacobean revenge and destiny, and now right here through David Stacton, the actually incomparable American historic novelist. Black as level velvet, Stacton's model is as packed with chilling insights and dreadful doings as Webster's, yet at backside all his own.' John Crowley (Little, substantial, Engine Summer)

'The prose of David Stacton is like that of no different author. It indicates a hall in a gloomy Gothic tower, ill-lit via tapers, at one finish of which a gong sounds regularly. Stacton's gong clashes are malevolent aphorisms, asides spoken to Nemesis, challenging little factors of motive.' Time
