Shriek

(2006)
An Afterword
(The second book in the Ambergris series)
A novel by

 

"Unsettling, erudite, dark, shot through with unexpected humour. Ambergris is one of my favourite haunts in fiction. "
China Miéville


"Playful, poignant, and utterly, wildly imaginative."
Peter Straub


Narrated with flamboyant intensity by one-time society figure Janice Shriek, and presenting a vivid gallery of strange characters and even stranger events, this is an account of the adventures of her brother Duncan, a historian obsessed with a doomed love affair and a dark secret that may kill or transform him. It involves, too, a war between rival publishing houses which threatens to change Ambergris forever, and rivalry with a marginalised race known as the "grey caps" who, armed with advanced fungal technologies, wait underground for their chance to recover the city that was once theirs. This story of the family, "Shriek" is an exotic and colourful novel of love, life and death which brings to fruition the author's genius for capturing the truly weird.
