Strange stories about houses, homes and families
A sentient house is overprotective of its occupants, a husband and wife cope with loneliness on a lengthy space flight, a Greenland shark mounts a supernatural attack on a mother and son, two sisters live in fear of the destroyed world beyond their walls, an engineer sabotages a post-apocalyptic holiday village, a camping trip turns a family feral, a man defragments his mind and another splices a rival’s brain patterns onto his own.
Includes the novella Carus & Mitch.
”More The Road than The Hunger Games, blending a John Wyndham-esque melancholy with a dose of existential despair, Carus & Mitch is a compelling, unconventional page-turner. Once I started reading it, I couldn’t put it down until I reached the end.” Lynda Rucker
“Carus & Mitch is punchy and scary and tense and genuinely moving. The central portrait of the book’s sibling relationship captures its mixture of friction and love spot on, with heartbreaking precision. Tim Major is an exceptional writer.” Adam Roberts
And The House Lights Dim
"And the House Lights Dim is an immensely worthwhile read." From Laura Mauro's review on Black Static. (British Fantasy Award Winner, 2018)
5* "This is an anthology of dark fantasy and with one of the stories entitled Finding Waltzer 3, you know there are going to be more twists than a curly wurly. The author has a talent for making the hair on the back of your neck stand on ends, whether its because of an over-protective house, a teenage gamer or someone wishing to have the mind of a rival. Do not go camping to St Erth and never disturb a Greenland Shark. The stories are varied and imaginative and all are beautifully written and thought provoking, as in the case of 'Winter in the Vivarium'." Babs on Amazon.co.uk
