I’m really pleased to see The Reddening make a couple of terrific Books of the Year 2019 lists. For a start they’re not exclusively genre lists, so that might be a first for one of my books, and this is the first novel published independently since Banquet’ in 2004 (this novel through my own Ritual Limited). The Red is abiding.
“Adam Nevill’s The Reddening is a smart, literary horror totally embedded in the Devon landscapes of its setting, violently gruesome at times. The novel has a mind-bending sense of deep time linking us to our ancestral past when we shared caves with giant hyenas and monsters in the dark were dangerously real; and made the coastal path in Devon seem a terrifying place for a day’s walking.”
A big two-horned salute to The Lonely Crowd and Gary Budden.
