Nestlings (2023)
Nat Cassidy
"Nat Cassidy is a master of creeping fear, of urban unease, of uncanny dread and outright horror. In Nestlings he brings his considerable imagination to bear on a creature we may think we're all too familiar with and imbues it with new life, reclaiming it for terror. It's a triumph and a vision you won't soon forget."
thumb
Blight (2023)
Tom Carlisle
"Tom Carlisle combines his gothic elements - the cursed landowning family, the uncanny pact, the lurking primal presence, the dark side of faery, the hero's reluctant return to his roots - into a potent magical brew often evocative of Machen but grippingly original."
thumb
The Other Lives of Miss Emily White (2023)
A J Elwood
"Delicately disturbing, elegantly uncanny, A. J. Elwood's novel shuts us in a school where even the ghostly can be a release and leads to a conclusion that's as poignant as it is disquieting. A real treat for connoisseurs of the classic supernatural tale."
