Product description


'That oh-so-unassuming title does not equip you for the journey you're about to undertake. Immersive, claustrophobic and utterly wonderful.' -M.R. Carey, New York Times bestselling author of The Girl With All the Gifts.

'Kim Newman gets inside your head like pollen off a field of wildflowers; the pleasant idyllic turns full of suffocating dread. Thoroughly enjoyable, master storytelling.' - Lauren Beukes, bestselling author of The Shining Girls.

'A masterful and often disturbing updating of the traditional haunted house story given a modern twist by an author who continues to push the limits of every genre he works in.' - World Fantasy Award-winning editor Stephen Jones

'Fine surprises in store for unsuspecting readers. Nicely done.' -Booklist

'All the elements of a classic spook story... beautifully written' -SFX

'Kim Newman s haunted house is complex, multi-layered and, most important of all, believably scarY.' -Choice Magazine

'With An English Ghost Story, Kim Newman shows that he can't help himself when he tackles a genre, he reinvents it. This time it's the haunted house novel, given a radical makeover that both references the past and looks to the future...suffice it to say that tales of terrifying dwellings will never be the same again.' - --The Independent

"An English Ghost Story is a terrific read!" --William Friedkin
