“Lorin Morgan-Richards charts the paths of weird clouds that pass far overhead and then maps the changes that their rain makes on the lives of people living below.”-Dark in the Dark Magazine

“Lorin Morgan-Richards has a unique tone and style all his own, and the stories are told in a fashion that pulls the casual reader in with wonderful fancy and the magical quality of good story telling. The high quality illustrations are rendered in sharp crisp lines and add to the wonderment instilled by these fanciful tales.”-MC Magazine

“Lorin Morgan-Richards art reminds me of a modern day Charles Addams or Edward Gorey. He dabbles in the unusual and strange, yet there’s just enough of the familiar in his artwork to keep it grounded.”-From My Bookshelf
