"Blair has the incredible ability to weave the most mundane passing thoughts into creepy nightmares. She does this without evocative shock and gore and instead builds imagery and cadence that lead you there. She manages to build a world of existential dread that is not too unlike our own and doesn't waste time."

Description:

Daniel is desperate for a job. When someone slides a note under his door offering him the groundskeeper’s position at an old estate, it seems too good to be true.

Alarm bells start ringing when he arrives at Craven Manor. The mansion’s front door hangs open, and leaves and cobwebs coat the marble foyer. It’s clear no one has lived there in a long time.

But an envelope waits for him inside the doorway. It contains money, and promises more.

Daniel is desperate. Against his better judgement, he moves into the groundskeeper’s cottage behind the crypt. He’s determined to ignore the strange occurrences that plague the estate.

But when a candle flickers to life in the abandoned tower window, Daniel realises Craven Manor is hiding a terrible secret… one that threatens to bury him with it.

-----------------

★★★★★ Tales From the Crypt meets The Twilight Zone "These creepy and tantalizing stories had me on the edge of my seat and quickly turning the pages while trying to keep my rolling stomach at bay (it’s not for the weak reader)."

★★★★★ Thrills that last "Much like Hitchcock or Lovecraft, your initial read through this book will be entertaining in that "shivers up your spine" kind of way. The problem is, a few days later, these stories will come back to haunt you..."

★★★★★ Lovecraftian horror "Wonderfully horrific...we witness the slow collapse into insanity and are dragged kicking and screaming along with it."

★★★★★ Dark, twisted fun "In the most venerable tradition of such horror masters as H.P. Lovecraft, Stephen King, and Clive Barker, Clayton Smith explores the scarier side of his brilliant novel-homage to small-town weirdness “Anomaly Flats” with this terrifying collection of brand-new short stories."

★★★★★ Imaginative and terrifying "Make the journey to Anomaly Flats - you won't be disappointed (but you might get a knot in your stomach and wonder if you should turn back!)"

★★★★★ Creepy, eerie otherworldliness "These creepy little stories quickly grab you with their atmosphere and intriguing ideas and they last just as long as they need."

★★★★★ Transdimensional, horrific, the stuff of epic science fiction "What could possibly be as great as the original novel ANOMALY FLATS, the story of the town that makes TWILIGHT ZONE, OUTER LIMITS, and NIGHT GALLERY look like Levittown? Well, here it is: IT CAME FROM ANOMALY FLATS."

★★★★★ Weird, scary sci-fi "Each story was creepy, delightful and written in such a way that, even though you only spend a short time with the characters, you really get invested in their lives."

★★★★★ Abandon all hope, ye who enter Anomaly Flats "What I did not expect was the rotting corpses, toxic goo, or at times gut-wrenching sorrow that hit me...the stories are creepy, and the perfect thing to read before bed -- perhaps even by candlelight!"

★★★★★ Marvelously dark "This is just a great collection of gritty, science fiction stories."

Songs of a Dead Dreamer and Grimscribe

Description:

Two terrifying classics by “the best kept secret in contemporary horror fiction” (The Washington Post)
 
Thomas Ligotti’s debut collection, Songs of a Dead Dreamer, and his second, Grimscribe, permanently inscribed a new name in the pantheon of horror fiction.  Influenced by the strange terrors of Lovecraft and Poe and by the brutal absurdity of Kafka, Ligotti eschews cheap, gory thrills for his own brand of horror, which shocks at the deepest, existential, levels.

Ligotti’s stories take on decaying cities and lurid dreamscapes in a style ranging from rich, ornamental prose to cold, clinical detachment. His raw and experimental work lays bare the unimportance of our world and the sickening madness of the human condition. Like the greatest writers of cosmic horror, Ligotti bends reality until it cracks, opening fissures through which he invites us to gaze on the unsettling darkness of the abyss below.

For more than sixty-five years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,500 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

Description:

In the “fast-paced, frightening” (The New York Times Book Review) sequel to Bird Box, the inspiration for the record-breaking Netflix film starring Sandra Bullock, bestselling author Josh Malerman brings unseen horrors to life.

NOMINATED FOR THE BRAM STOKER AWARD • “Malorie is even more of a psychological thriller than Bird Box, and all the scarier for it.”—The Wall Street Journal

Twelve years after Malorie and her children rowed up the river to safety, a blindfold is still the only thing that stands between sanity and madness. One glimpse of the creatures that stalk the world will drive a person to unspeakable violence.

There remains no explanation. No solution.

All Malorie can do is survive—and impart her fierce will to do so on her children. Don’t get lazy, she tells them. Don’t take off your blindfold. AND DON’T LOOK.

But then comes what feels like impossible news. And with it, the first time Malorie has allowed herself to hope.

Someone very dear to her, someone she believed dead, may be alive.

Malorie has already lost so much: her sister, a house full of people who meant everything, and any chance at an ordinary life. But getting her life back means returning to a world full of unknowable horrors—and risking the lives of her children again.

Because the creatures are not the only thing Malorie fears: There are the people who claim to have caught and experimented on the creatures. Murmerings of monstrous inventions and dangerous new ideas. And rumors that the creatures themselves have changed into something even more frightening.

Malorie has a harrowing choice to make: to live by the rules of survival that have served her so well, or to venture into the darkness and reach for hope once more.
