Welcome to Manningtree, Essex, 1643. The English Civil War has taken most of the men, leaving women to their own devices in a world where Puritanism is on the rise and rumors are spreading about strange figures and shapes in the night, animals affected by an unknown illness, and a young boy suffering from mania. Rebecca West, unmarried and with little to do, lives with her often drunk and confrontational mother, the idleness of her days broken only by churchgoing, market outings, and  occasional encounters with young, handsome John Edes. But she believes she can do more and be more....At times dark and disturbing, Blakemore's unsettling yet lyrical debut will have you turning the pages ever faster.

In this contemporary horror classic, Peter Straub weaves an elegant web of terror surrounding the sleepy town of Milburn, New York. When a close group of four old friends gathers to trade ghost stories following the death of one in their inner circle, they dredge up a past filled with regrets, mysteries, and lingering evil. Straub's slow-burn tale draws the reader into a setting that's well-realized and tangibly real--then he pulls out the rug beneath you with terrifying escalation. Ghost Story begins as an enveloping mystery and transforms into a riveting exploration of pure malevolence, and it remains a unique gem of the genre.

This is a story about a woman and her dog sent to clean out her estranged, and now deceased, grandmother's house. While doing so, she comes across her step-grandfather's manuscript, his attempt to recreate a book he once read and is now missing. Supposedly, the man had come across a non-existent hill that led to strange rock carvings and to something even worse beyond. With huge references to Machen's The White People, Kingfisher spins a bizarre tale that fills you with dread at every turn.
