Beast (2019)
(Six Stories, book 4)
Matt Wesolowski
"Endlessly inventive and with literary thrills a-plenty, Matt Wesolowski is boldly carving his own uniquely dark niche in fiction."

Crow Court (2021)
Andy Charman
"Debut novels shouldn't be this perfectly formed. Its subject is historic, yet its exploration of morality feels utterly modern. A rarity in historical fiction: it truly places you in the here and now of a world once removed. Crow Court already looks, feels and smells like a classic."

A Lonely Man (2021)
Chris Power
"Such grand themes as wealth, power, greed and truth itself are explored in an impressively deft and discrete way. Here a bottle of beer or an illicit kiss feel as subtly significant as the death of an oligarch or a mysterious man on the run. A Lonely Man is a tense and taut work that’s utterly European, and all the better for it."
thumb
Burntcoat (2021)
Sarah Hall
"I can think of no other British writer whose talent so consistently thrills, surprises and staggers. Sarah Hall's work has everything: drama, poetry, tension, sensuality, dark magic and that undefinable otherness that is unique to her. She is the best there is. 'Writer's writer' can often be seen as a backhanded compliment, but Sarah Hall is this - and so much more. With Burntcoat she has solidified her status as the literary shining light we lesser souls aspire to."

Sell Us the Rope (2022)
Stephen May
"A fascinating and immersive imagining of real events that both challenges and illuminates history."
