"If you crave a spin down the surreal side, and if you already love where horror poetry has come the last few years, you will appreciate the twilight zone between prose and poetry that Arnzen navigates so well."--William D. Gagliani, Flesh & Blood
"Jaded horror veterans would certainly welcome this book as a refreshing change of pace from mass market factory schlock. If you see this book, grab it, and give yourself a jolt."--Creature Corner
"On and on the jolts go in an avalanche of ideas and wordplay and brutal imagery that is sure to shock or titillate even the most jaded of readers?All of the one hundred stories presented here are entertaining. A number of them are classics. Michael Arnzen should be proud of what he has accomplished. 100 JOLTS is the creation of a very talented writer at the top of his game and will undoubtedly find itself on a number of awards lists this coming year. Highly recommended."--ChiZine
"If you're a reader you should have this, if you're a writer you need this."--Horror-Web
