House of Small Shadows is the disturbing novel about a modern phobia from award-winning author Adam Nevill. The Red House: home to the damaged genius of the late M. H. Mason, master taxidermist and puppeteer, where he lived and created some of his most disturbing works. The building and its treasure trove of antiques is long forgotten, but the time has come for his creations to rise from the darkness. Catherine Howard can't believe her luck when she's invited to value the contents of the house. When she first sees the elaborate displays of posed, costumed and preserved animals and macabre puppets, she's both thrilled and terrified. It's an opportunity to die for. But the Red House has secrets, secrets as dreadful and dark as those from Catherine's own past. At night the building comes alive with noises and movements: footsteps, and the fleeting glimpses of small shadows on the stairs. And soon the barriers between reality, sanity and nightmare begin to collapse . . .

The Theological Turn In Contemporary Gothic Fiction

This study examines theological themes and resonances in post-1970 Gothic fiction. It argues that contemporary Gothic is not simply a secularised genre, but rather one that engages creatively - and often subversively - with theological texts and traditions. This creative engagement is reflected in Gothic fiction's exploration of theological concepts including sin and evil, Christology and the messianic, resurrection, eschatology and apocalypse. Through readings of fiction by Gothic and horror writers including Stephen King, Joyce Carol Oates, Peter Straub, William Peter Blatty and others, this book demonstrates that Christianity continues to haunt the Gothic imagination and that the genre's openness to the mysterious, numinous and non-rational opens space in which to explore religious beliefs and experiences less easily accessible to more overtly realist forms of representation. The book offers a new perspective on contemporary Gothic fiction that will be of interest to students and scholars of contemporary Gothic and of the relationship between literature and religion more generally.

It is autumn, 1863, in rural Kent. Cecily Carpenter, at only fourteen, has been sent into service as the housemaid of the local rectory, and is distraught as she faces the loss of her long-held dream of becoming a teacher. Alfred Nicholson, though ten years older, also struggles to come to terms with the path set down for him by fate and family. He is a gentle, musical man, who has become the reluctant heir of a small building business. Only his love for Emma Fielding, the local schoolteacher, gives him hope that his life has meaning and purpose. Both Cecily and Alfred face an age-old problem as they set out into adult life. Should they fight for their dreams, or give them up in the face of difficult circumstances, their own inadequacies and the expectations of their families and society? At the heart of their story lies a tragedy, now buried beneath years of silence and shame. The 'small shadow' of the title is a young child, who stands in a stream building a dam on a hot summer's day. He is unaware that he holds in his hands, not just rocks and stones, but the power to destroy his brother, or save him.

Few believed Professor Coldwell could communicate with spirits. But in Scotland's oldest university town something has passed from darkness into light. Now, the young are being haunted by night terrors and those who are visited disappear. This is certainly not a place for outsiders, especially at night. So what chance do a rootless musician and burned-out explorer have of surviving their entanglement with an ageless supernatural evil and the ruthless cult that worships it? A chilling occult thriller from award-winning author Adam Nevill, Banquet for the Damned is both a homage to the great age of British ghost stories and a pacey modern tale of Devil worship and witchcraft.

It's not only the eerie atmosphere of the vast, neglected house, or the disturbing attitude of her new landlord, Knacker McGuire, that makes her uneasy - it's the whispers behind the fireplace, the scratching beneath floors, the footsteps in the dark, and the young women weeping in neighbouring rooms. And when Knacker's cousin Fergal arrives, the danger goes vertical. But this is merely a beginning, a gateway to horrors beyond Stephanie's worst nightmares. And in a house where no one listens to the screams, will she ever get out alive?
