Alison Littlewood recommends
Ripper (2017)
Angela Slatter
"Angela Slater is one of the treasures of current horror fiction. Her work is darkly magical, lyrical, and beautiful, and I can't recommend it highly enough."
The Coffin Path (2018)
Katherine Clements
"The Coffin Path is exquisite - the intense and brooding sense of place is reminiscent of Wuthering Heights, while Clements' characters are as vividly evoked as the dark fate hovering over them all. Highly recommended."
Bone China (2019)
Laura Purcell
"This is an absolute treat, all wrapped up in Laura Purcell's gorgeous and compelling prose. I would very happily be pixy-led for days through the pages of this book!"
Eden (2020)
Tim Lebbon
"Against a backdrop of environmental disaster, Tim Lebbon creates a lush, intricate, mysterious and intriguing world – an Eden where anything can happen. The writing is beautiful; the story is haunting and impossible to put down. Highly recommended!"
The Golden Key (2020)
Marian Womack
"An intriguing and unsettling tale of séances, strange lights, disappearing children and a poacher who swears he has seen the devil in the marshes... Womack brings a great sense of the uncanny to the Fens."
The Evil Within (2020)
(Dark Devon Mysteries, book 1)
S M Hardy
"Part haunted house tale, part whodunnit ideal for anyone who enjoys an exciting and gripping supernatural mystery."
Survivor Song (2020)
Paul Tremblay
"Packed full of emotion and suspense, Survivor Song is so gripping it may as well have been glued to my hands. Paul Tremblay is a master of modern horror."
All the Murmuring Bones (2021)
A G Slatter
"A. G. Slatter is a born storyteller. Her work is as beautiful and dangerous as the best fairy tales and All the Murmuring Bones is entirely enchanting. A magical read!"
Such Pretty Things (2021)
Lisa Heathfield
"A wonderfully creepy and unsettling account of the terrors of a child trapped in an uncertain adult world. The suspense grows as that world becomes increasingly untrustworthy and dangerous, resulting in the steady disintegration of normality. A terrific read."
All the White Spaces (2022)
Ally Wilkes
"A journey into winter, a growing sense of isolation, a battle with the elements and facing down the ghosts of the past - Ally Wilkes has taken some of my very favorite ingredients and bound them into a deliciously spooky and compulsive tale. Ideal for a dark evening, though you might want to draw a little closer to the fire . . ."
The Haunting of Las Lagrimas (2022)
W M Cleese
"A garden concealing dark secrets beneath its decay, mysterious ruins and a forest full of tangled pathways, all stranded amid the emptiness of the Argentinean pampas... The setting makes for a wonderfully gothic atmosphere in this intriguing historical ghost story."
Begars Abbey (2022)
V L Valentine
"An inventive, lavish, twisty ghost story that will keep you guessing and turning the pages until the very end. Atmospheric and hugely enjoyable."
