Lalumière's own fiction consists mostly of short stories tending to dark fantasy. In a review of his first collection, Objects of Worship in Strange Horizons, Anil Menon characterised the title story and two others as generating "that wondering disquiet so hard to achieve with other literary genres" and noting that they were already being studied in writing courses.[3]
