Stuart's first collection, Ocean Eyes, is reviewed elsewhere in infinity plus. Others have commented:

Stephen Gallagher: "Very powerful, driven by strong feeling, that grabbed my attention and drew me along easily."

Mark Chadbourn: "I really enjoyed this - it dealt with mature topics which is always a joy to see in genre stories. An excellent command of dialogue and that made the characters seem real to me."

Simon Clark: "I read this with a great big grin all over my face - I loved it."

Madeleine Finnegan: "This was so good I didn't want it to end. That's the highest accolade I ever give anyone!"
