Virtuoso by Yelena Moskovich
Virtuoso
by Yelena Moskovich (Goodreads Author)
Rate this book
Clear rating
Nobody writes like Yelena Moskovich, and this novel is aptly named. I consumed Virtuoso in sips like it was the richest hot chocolate I’d ever had. But at the end I was left with a mildly disappointing bitter taste.

It opens with a woman being found d

The House on Vesper Sands by Paraic O'Donnell
Rate this book
Clear rating
The clocks have gone back and Halloween has passed – now it's officially winter, I have a craving for historical fiction. The House on Vesper Sands is a Victorian pastiche with a mystery at its heart and touches of the macabre – a bit like The Woman ...more

Two Dark Tales consists of two novellas, 'Jack Squat' and 'The Niche'. Both are horror stories; as Lambert explains in the afterword, he has sought to recreate the memorable images and feelings of blissful terror he experienced, as a child, reading t ...more

The Silver Wind by Nina Allan
Rate this book
Clear rating
The Silver Wind is a novel-in-stories. In some ways it reads like a shorter, less ambitious (though no less engaging) precursor to The Race; a series of narratives which could be enjoyed separately, but reveal their true magic when considered togethe ...more

Claire's house is deep in the countryside, surrounded by woods. She is home alone – her husband Ian is in Qatar for work – and it's been raining for three days when a man turns up on her doorstep. It's Dean, a friend she hasn't seen in over a year. H ...more

Cottingley by Alison Littlewood
Rate this book
Clear rating
The cover belies the contents of Cottingley: this is a historical novella which depicts a slow slide into horror, not the lurid gore-fest you might expect if you spend too long looking at that skeleton-fairy-thing.

The plot is based on the real (well,

by C.J. Tudor (Goodreads Author)
Rate this book
Clear rating
I picked this up with the expectation that I might not like it much – and ended up reading it very quickly, racing through it in a handful of sittings. It's a grim, gritty thriller with elements of horror. The latter were why I couldn't quite bring m ...more

Help the Witch by Tom Cox

Tom Cox is best known for his humorous non-fiction, particularly the memoir 21st-Century Yokel and several books about his social-media-famous cats. Help the Witch is something different: a collection of spooky short stories. The blurb sells it wel ...more

Andrew O'Hagan
“I had once asked him if he felt happy hiding in the internet and he said yes, it was his home. On a good day it is the bright field that contains all souls but on a bad day it is the final darkness, where misery is gapingly exposed.”
Andrew O'Hagan, The Secret Life: Three True Stories

Emma Jane Unsworth
“These things you treasure, how often they're somebody else's trash.”
Emma Jane Unsworth, Animals

John Darnielle
“I imagined a quiet future in an imaginary world where nothing ever really happened but everything seemed charged with life.”
John Darnielle, Wolf in White Van

Claude Houghton
“If love is what the world thinks it is," she went on with passionate emphasis, "then I am incapable of it. It is monotony, and I loathe monotony more than anything else in the universe. To live with a person, year in, year out; to see that person at nearly every meal; to hear his opinions again and again! My God, is that what they call love? I call it death! I need passion, colour, the unexpected—the romance of the unknown!”
Claude Houghton, I Am Jonathan Scrivener

Emma Jane Unsworth
“Where were my allies? My sad captains? Those moonsick girls I drank with over long winters behind the bowling alley, driven there in cars we didn't know. Those times when we were all strangers and everything was so far away but all we needed to do was run towards it. I had not grown much. I had not reached anywhere. I was still running. When I wasn't lying down.”
Emma Jane Unsworth, Animals
