In a lonely, snowbound house, the insular existence of a writer and his wife is disturbed by the arrival of a girl with no memory... and reverberations from the past which threaten to unbalance the present... A ghostly encounter changes the life of a bored young woman in an abusive relationship... In a technological future, one man finds out that it's possible to love your gadgets a little too much... What if the end of the world brought with it every apocalypse you'd ever dared to imagine..? And the only bulwark between the rational world and the paranormal forces which threaten to engulf it is the Department for Extra-Usual Affairs. Be afraid. Be very afraid. The Janus House and Other Two-Faced Tales is a novella and short story collection which demonstrates the astonishing imagination of David Barnett, author of the critically acclaimed novels Hinterland and Angelglass.
