Mark Morris recommends
thumb
The Leaping (2010)
Tom Fletcher
"I haven't been so blown away by a horror debut since I first read Clive Barker's Books of Blood twenty-five years ago. The Leaping is everything that good fiction should be--it is compelling, relevant and original. . . . like a dark, corrupt fairytale, oozing with dread and ancient menace."
thumb
Hekla's Children (2017)
James Brodgen and James Brogden
"Hekla's Children marks the emergence on to a vibrant horror scene of an exciting new talent. James Brogden offers us a compulsive and unpredictable page-turner in which the ancient and modern world clash with devastating effect."
thumb
The War in the Dark (2018)
Nick Setchfield
"Like an irresistible blend of a John Le Carré spy thriller and Hammer's The Devil Rides Out, Nick Setchfield's debut novel is a vivid and compelling page-turner, which propels you from scene to scene with such verve and invention that you have no choice but to keep reading. It's the sort of book you pick up, thinking, 'I'll just have five minutes', and an hour later you're still feverishly turning the pages, because you have to find out what happens next."
