Product Description

Product Description

Finally available again after almost seven years Tim Lebbon and Gavin Williams' classic apocalyptic dark fantasy novel, HUSH, is a devastating tale of stolen identity, hidden pasts, horrifying alternate dimensions and, perhaps, the end of the world!

When Jacob and his fiery band of animal activists raid an experimental facility they uncover far more than they bargained for... Amidst the animal subjects a teenage girl is being kept in a cage, abused, beaten and tortured. Jacob and his band escape by the skin of their teeth, but then one by one his friends disappear before any of them can reveal their appalling discovery...

Jacob and his ex-girlfriend, Maria, manage to rescue the girl, Lila, and go on the run. They are relentlessly pursued by enemies who seem to possess magical powers and as they desperately try to get to the bottom of Lila's significance Jacob's nightmarish visions of an alien alternate reality become ever stronger. All the while Lila begins to prove herself so much more than a poor lost teenager.

Much, much more...


EDITORIAL REVIEWS:

“With HUSH, Tim Lebbon and Gavin Williams deliver a chillingly horrific tour-de-force that is at the cutting edge of the genre... A masterfully written book... HUSH is, quite simply, a modern masterpiece.” - Brian Keene, author of TAKE THE LONG WAY HOME and TEQUILA's SUNRISE.

“HUSH weaves a bizarre narrative filled to bursting with paranoia and rife with heart-pounding madness. There are twisted visions here that will get inside your heart to root and flourish.” - Tom Piccirilli, author of EVERY SHALLOW CUT and THE COLDEST MILE.

“It’s books of this quality that keep me coming back to the dark well of horror fiction time and time again. I offer HUSH as proof that scary books, properly handled, can stand shoulder to shoulder with the best literature on the shelves.” - Garrett Peck in THE HELLNOTES BOOK REVIEW

“HUSH blends outright horror, Lovecraftian fantasy and pitch black humour to stunning effect. Lebbon and Williams have taken genre staples and given them a damn good shaking, creating something welcomingly fresh and unconventional... Everything about this book... exudes class. So what are you waiting for – go and buy it!” - PRISM, THE MAGAZINE OF THE BRITISH FANTASY SOCIETY

“Lebbon and Williams work the room like pros, keeping the reader's eyes focused on unnerving, distinctive details while using them to build up a picture of evil on a truly grand scale... HUSH offers brooding paranoia, cosmic monsters and day-to-day life as pieces of a puzzle the reader puts together alongside the characters. The prose is never less than compelling, and the story is relentless.” - Rick Kleffel in the AGONY COLUMN REVIEWS

“HUSH, by Tim Lebbon and Gavin Williams, may well be the British horror novel of the year, and I don't say that lightly... Lebbon and Williams are masterful storytellers, able to convey the surreal and disturbing without backing down, yet rooting it so firmly in our mundane world that it is impossible not to accept... Don't believe that, as you near the end, you have everything worked out though - Lebbon and Williams save some body blows for the final few pages.” - CIAO UK

“HUSH is a triumphant phantasmagoria, a headlong journey containing much that will long linger in the mind.” – WALDEN EAST REVIEWS

4.0 out of 5 stars Dynamite début. 25 Feb 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Has it really been 12 years since I first read this? This was the book that started a 12 year and counting love affair with the writing of Mr Lebbon, and Williams. This is a wonderfully gripping tale, that will chill you to the bone

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark intelligent horror, a brilliant read. 29 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
For those of you that are not aware of Mr Lebbon and his work, this is a perfect place to start. Together With Gavin Williams, Lebbon has crafted a dark and incredibly atmospheric read, full of unexpected twists and turns, with a hint of Lovecraft thrown in. One of the best books I've read over the last few years.

4.0 out of 5 stars HUSH by Tim Lebbon & Gavin Williams 27 Feb 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
HUSH begins like any one of many miserablist horror novels around. And then, suddenly, we are pitched into something so much greater, not to say cosmic. The gritty reality of the main character Jacob's failing relationship, and his angers and obsessions is apparently left behind as a story of Lovecraftian proportions and import rapidly unfolds.

We try to follow what is going on through a series of reality distortions and redesignations worthy of Philip K. Dick. When anything is beginning to come clear, then Lebbon and Williams undermine it and change everything, thus keeping the story moving fast, and our assumptions challenged and any notion of what is to come is up for grabs. HUSH abounds in sharp observations and striking metaphor, and it is nothing if not visceral. And yet... As whatever it is that is going on - some sort of war and invasion from Outside - there is a core of humanity that persists in Jacob and his friends. Whatever they are, and whatever he is.

H.P. Lovecraft's dictum that a weird tale should be about setting and incident, and try to put over the sense of something scratching at the edge of the cosmos is at one and the same time borne out in the story's vaguenesses, and contradicted by its character- and relationship-driven cast. Few stories have been as Lovecraftian as HUSH, while having so few of the obvious trimmings. HUSH is a triumphant phantasmagoria, a headlong journey containing much that will long linger in the mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars the best take on Lovecraft mythos ever 6 May 2014
By jfm326 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's a highly imaginative, beautifully plotted and entirely original interpretation of the Lovecraft mythos of the Old zones trying to take over our world. Deserves to be much better known than it is.

2.0 out of 5 stars did you ever see the movie ground hog day? 28 April 2012
By Kelli - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Jacob, the angry activist, finds a girl locked in a cell. And all of Hell breaks loose when he saves her.

The book starts with multiple flashbacks into another life. These were painful and confusing.

And once you get a handle on the flashbacks, and you understand what they are...

The book becomes the scary version of Ground Hog Day. One new event and ending after the other. Start again, new day and repeat. Just so you can end the book as you started...confused.

Did I get it? Yeah, I understood. I just didn't like it. Now, go to the top and read this again.
