Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0995463034, Paperback)

A bestial face appears at windows in the night.
In the big white house on the hill angels are said to appear.
A forgotten tenant in an isolated building becomes addicted to milk.
A strange goddess is worshipped by a home-invading disciple.
The least remembered gods still haunt the oldest forests.
Cannibalism occurs in high society at the end of the world.
The sainted undead follow their prophet to the Great Dead Sea.
A confused and vengeful presence occupies the home of a first-time buyer . . .

In ghastly harmony with the nightmarish visions of the award-winning writer's novels, these stories blend a lifelong appreciation of horror culture with the grotesque fascinations and childlike terrors that are the author's own.
Adam L.G. Nevill's best early horror stories are collected here for the first time.

"Adam Nevill is a spine-chiller in the classic tradition, a writer who draws you in from the world of the familiar, eases you into the world of terror, and then locks the door behind you" - Michael Koryta, NYT Bestselling author

"Nevill is fast becoming Britain's answer to Stephen King" - Guardian

"The sense of dread is immediate, with the reader's sense of foreboding increasing with every new page" - Irish Examiner

"Readers will lose all hope of peaceful, undisturbed sleep. Highly recommended" - Library Journal (Starred Review)

"Nevill's talent for horror resonates ominously in every scene, almost as if the theme from Jaws echoes when a page is turned" - Kirkus

"He has the rare ability to craft a nebulous atmosphere of terror, as well as to capture cinematic slasherpunk in the written word. Both are incredibly rare talents" - Pornokitsch

"Chilling, disorienting, and deeply creepy" - Scott Smith, author of The Ruins, on House of Small Shadows

"This sets the bar for the best horror novel of the decade" - Booklist on House of Small Shadows

"This author makes you turn on your lights and keep reading ... if there were six stars to be given instead of five, this one deserves them!" - Suspense Magazine on No One Gets Out Alive

"Nevill ornaments his tale of brutality and bloodshed with florid Gothic prose, like flock wallpaper gracing a torture dungeon" - Financial Times on Lost Girl

"Not suitable for: anyone who doesn't want nightmares" - Fantasy Book Review

"Gets under your skin and stays there" - Geek Syndicate
