BOOK RECS: RAWBLOOD AND THE LONEY

By 10th November 2015Uncategorised

Two novels I’ve read recently that make an important contribution of quality horror to modern fiction (and traditional publishing).

Fans of great writing, steep yourselves in RAWBLOOD by Catriona Ward. A lyrical, moving, eerie story, reminding me of M.R. James, Ted Hughes, & Emily Bronte by turns. Even McCarthy. First class. It filled my head for four nights, and will linger there too . . . A definite book of the year for me.

The LONEY by Andrew Michael Hurley. If you haven’t read this yet, it’s another gem. Some finely depicted folk horror rustles therein …

Both stories feature remarkable treatments of regional British landscapes.
