I’m doing a double-header with F. R. Tallis on Thursday evening at the new Birmingham Library, talking horror and I’ll be reading from HOUSE OF SMALL SHADOWS. It’s been a really well-promoted event so I’m relieved a lot of tickets have been sold. The new library really is a fabulous place too.
“Horror novelists Adam Nevill and Frank Tallis share their knowledgeable about horror stories and talk about their latest novels. Both novels are equally creepy and thrilling at the same time.
Adam will be talking about House of Small Shadows in which the barriers between reality, sanity and memory start to merge. And some truths seem too terrible to be real…
The Sleep Room by Frank Tallis is an atmospheric re-invention of the ghost story about young psychiatrist who starts questioning everything he knows about the human mind as he attempts to unlock the shocking secrets of the Sleep Room.
Adam L. G. Nevill was born in Birmingham, England, in 1969 and grew up in England and New Zealand. He is the author of Banquet for the Damned, Apartment 16 and The Ritual. Adam was the winner of The August Derleth Award as part of British Fantasy Award for Horror in 2012 for his novel The Ritual.
Frank. R. Tallis is a huge reader of ghost stories and incredibly knowledgeable about the genre. He is also a clinical psychologist and has held lecturing posts at the Institute of Psychiatry and King’s College, London. The Forbidden, his ninth novel, is a horror story set in nineteenth-century Paris and this, The Sleep Room, is his tenth.”
