Lisa Tuttle recommends
The Burn Street Haunting (2023)
Richard Gadz
"Gadz brings the squalor of Victorian London to life...The fast-moving story maintains a good balance between the outright horror of gleefully gruesome scenes and the increasingly sympathetic character of the 'monstrous' Maria, as she learns what it means to be human."
Witch Bottle (2020)
Tom Fletcher
"Fletcher has a most distinctive voice, and convinces me that there may be some truth at last in those rumours about a renaissance in British supernatural fiction."
The Golden Key (2020)
Marian Womack
"A fascinating, unsettling tale that shifts, mutates and changes meaning much like the eerie ruined house in the fens at the centre of this weird and brilliant debut novel."
