Ally Wilkes

Ally Wilkes, the Bram Stoker Award-nominated author of All the White Spaces, grew up in a succession of isolated--possibly haunted--country houses and boarding schools. After studying law at Oxford, she went on to spend eleven years as a criminal barrister. Ally now lives in Greenwich, London, with an anatomical human skeleton and far too many books about Polar exploration. You can follow Ally on Twitter @UnheimlichManvr.

Ally Wilkes recommends
A Botanical Daughter (2024)
Noah Medlock
"Deliciously arch and bursting with eccentricity, A Botanical Daughter starts its uncanny life as a cosy-yet-macabre look at found family. Soon, however, it grows, steadily and with skill, into a vegetal monstrosity, forcing us to look - not without a shiver - at the horrifying 'other' and the boundaries of personhood. An extraordinary debut."
The Briar Book of the Dead (2024)
A G Slatter
"Dark, witchy, and downright delicious, The Briar Book of The Dead is the perfect read for shorter days and longer nights."
This Wretched Valley (2024)
Jenny Kiefer
"This Wretched Valley is a reality-warping, body-horror, don't-go-into-the-woods nightmare which grips from its very first sentence. Kiefer deftly weaves something Dyatlov Pass - shaped from her characters' hubris and pain, leading them to a ghastly and inevitable end sure to delight fans of The Troop or Blair Witch. A truly unforgettable debut."
