Praise

“”Splendid and eerie … Herzog has a knack for summoning the uncanny into otherwise austere, modern settings, and further twisting its presence into a foreboding paranoia. … Shrewd and provocative … The plots are thick, and the twists are powerful.”  Dave Wheeler,  Shelf Awareness


Ghosts of Berlin‘s explicit foregrounding of the macabre is a clever sleight of hand that also allows for consideration of gentrification … Sharp satire, and a worthy addition to the growing canon of Berlin ghost-lit.” — Booklist


International praise for Ghosts of Berlin


“Rudolph Herzog is a master craftsman of the horror genre.” Deutschlandfunk  
“Herzog is fearless, not because he is unafraid of ghosts, but because he settles them all in bumptious Berlin, which would seem to reject every thought of something as romantic and antiquated as a ghost, yet contains all the historic raw materials that tend to breed ghosts like dunghill maggots. Die Zeit
 
“In Herzog’s gripping stories, the artistic-wickedness of Berlin and its architectural misery flicker in the twilight.” Süddeutsche Zeitung
 
“Rudolph Herzog’s ghost stories are downright classics and give Berlin back what was forgotten in the years of the party, the gentrification, the reunification: the horror, the suffering, the spirits of the people who have perished as losers of history.” —Radio Eins
