Collection of short fantastical stories, many with a Lovecraftian touch. “Don Webb is a genius. He’s not widely appreciated. There are some things mankind was not meant to know.” — Bruce Sterling. “Several are genuinely brilliant […] The miracle of When They Came is its exuberance […] light begins to shine, griffins scream, the world is different.” — John Clute in Interzone. “This concise, sharp volume is a great introduction to Webb’s fiction for the reader unfamiliar with his work and a welcome reminder of his talent for the rest of us.” — Jeff VanderMeer, Locus Online.
