Christopher Fowler recommends

Sleep, Pale Sister (1994)
Joanne Harris
"A hauntingly evocative laudenum-dream of a novel."

Only Forward (1994)
Michael Marshall Smith
"Only Forward is about guilt and betrayal, friendship and love, and it's wonderfully funny, witty and thoroughly recommended."
Gordius
Gordius (1998)
John Evans
"British horror has found an alarming, exciting new voice."
The Alsiso Project
The Alsiso Project (2003)
Andrew Hook and Christopher Kenworthy
"This is what you get when you give creative minds rules and obstacles to overcome. Freshness, originality, wit, cruelty and a certain amount of outrageous slyness."

Pretty Little Dead Things (2010)
(Thomas Usher, book 1)
Gary McMahon
"A very disturbing read. McMahon seems intent on tearing down the walls between the living and the dead."

Orchid Blue (2010)
(Blue, book 2)
Eoin McNamee
"McNamee works the line between crime and literature... Heartstopping, brilliant."
