With Ben Baldwin's haunting cover, it is a collection that all horror fans should have. And if you think I say that just because he's part of our family, well, take a look at these testimonials:

‘Paul Kane is a first-rate storyteller, never failing to marry his insights into the world and its anguish with the pleasures of phrases eloquently turned.’

(Clive Barker — Bestselling author of The Hellbound Heart, Abarat, Mr B. Gone & The Scarlet Gospels)

‘Paul Kane’s lean, stripped-back prose is a tool that’s very much fit for purpose. He knows how to make you want to avoid the shadows and the cracks in the pavement.’

(Mike Carey — Bestselling author of the Felix Castor series of novels and The Girl With All the Gifts, Fellside and The Boy on the Bridge as M.R. Carey)

‘Kane finds the everyday horrors buried within us, rips them out and serves them up in these deliciously dark tales.’

(Kelley Armstrong — Bestselling author of Bitten, Haunted, Broken, Waking the Witch, Spell Bound and Thirteen)

‘I’m impressed by the range of Paul Kane’s imagination. It seems there is no risk, no high-stakes gamble, he fears to take...Kane’s foot never gets even close to the brake pedal.’

(Peter Straub — Bestselling author of Ghost Story, Mr X, Lost Boy Lost Girl, and In the Night Room)

‘Paul Kane is a name to watch. His work is disturbing and very creepy.’

(Tim Lebbon — New York Times bestselling author of The Cabin in the Woods, The Silence, and Relics)

‘His stories not only, at his best, put him neck and neck with Ramsey Campbell and Clive Barker, but also in the company of greats like Machen and MR James. You don’t rest easily after reading a Paul Kane story, but strangely your eyes have been somewhat opened.’

(Stephen Volk — BAFTA winning screenwriter of Gothic, Ghostwatch, Afterlife, The Awakening, and Midwinter of the Spirit; author of Whitstable, Leytonstone, and The Parts We Play)

‘He stands out as one of the better writers I’ve read.’ (Eternal Night)

‘Wonderfully dark and satisfying.’

(Dark Side Magazine)

‘Kane is best when taking risks with his bizarre flights of imagination.’

(SFX Magazine)

‘Kane is a highly regarded author whose influence can be felt across the genre, with a large and notable body of work behind him.’

(Starburst Magazine)
