Reviews of Checkered Scissors:Checkered Scissors

"Douglas Schwartz's "Checkered Scissors" is a delightful read, especially for those who love imaginative fiction or who are plagued by bizarre dreams that lead them to muse about intriguing implications in their waking life. For the latter, if you can imagine what it might be like if everything you've ever dreamed, read about it, or experienced materialized into a physical dimension, and was left to simmer together and evolve for a long while before you entered it yourself, you'll have an idea of the book's setting."

"What an incredibly imaginative book! I really don't know how the author thought up half the things in here. Crazy characters, crazier worlds. Just brilliant. It really sucks you in and makes you curious about what happens next."
