"'A Fish in Chocolate Cake' by Pamela Briggs is my favourite [in The Urbanite #8: Fabulous Creatures].
Her wonderfully observed characters are instantly engaging and the uncanny plot unfolds like a magic trick."
– Tony Lee, Zene #12
"Other standouts [in Young Blood] are...two gross-outs [including] 'Hysterical' by Pamela Briggs..."
– Linda Marotta, Fangoria
"Cool story. I liked it. Very gross."
– Poppy Z. Brite on "Hysterical"
"Briggs pulls off a difficult story-telling challenge: creating a dynamic tale out of a bedridden point-of-view character [in "Come to My Senses"]. But she does. Anthea's voice works."
– James Van Pelt, Tangent Online
"Tooth & Nail: Two Stories by Pamela Briggs are two reprints by a newcomer to watch."
– Ellen Datlow, The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror: Ninth Annual Collection
"With its twisted look at beauty politics, 'Lee's Own' [in The Brood of Sycorax]...makes for great feminist horror fiction."
– Miriam Wolf, Factsheet Five
– Jenny B, The British Fantasy Society Newsletter
"Pamela Briggs takes a truly different look at the commonplace in 'Lunch with Janoscz, the Deconstruction Worker.' This is the best story of the issue; it tells its tale quietly and effectively, but ends up taking the reader to a truly weird place."
– James J. Murray, Tangent
"Another of my favorites from this issue was 'Lunch with Janoscz, the Deconstruction Worker' . . . truly a strange experience . . . The dialogue here is fun to read, more than humorous, and quite clever."
– Andrea Locke, Deathrealm
