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."
