“If a successful story needs to be multi-faceted and able to adapt its 'spike,' then an anthology certainly must be the same. In this regard, Hard Ticket is certainly successful.”- Brad Dunne, The Literary Review of Canada
“This collection of 17 short stories is an assemblage of introductory punch, narrative compaction, clear-cut and assured characters, and affective and even haunting ambiance. … There are so many strong pieces here, soundly structured and with their own voices and twists.”- Joan Sullivan, The Telegram
