DESCRIPTION:

The old, spooky farm house looked as though everyone just got up one day and walked away, leaving their belongings behind. Locals called it the “devil’s house” but artist Taryn Magill has never met an old, abandoned house she didn’t like. In fact, she’s made a career of painting them. She might have bitten off more than she can chew with her new job, however. Everyone is afraid of the house and can’t wait to see it torn down and, as it turns out, their fears may not be unfounded.

Whose cries echo throughout the rooms? What force is SO powerful that it won’t even allow the upstairs bedroom to be touched? What, if anything, does the 93-year-old vanishing of the boy next door have to do with the house’s mysteries? Taryn might have the answers soon, for now she doesn’t have to imagine the past–she can see it through her camera!

Can Taryn escape with her sanity AND solve the mystery of Windwood Farm before the house is demolished? And will she even live through this job? Because now someone is trying to kill her! Using her camera and her wits, she’ll try to find the answers and get out before it’s too late!

DESCRIPTION:

“A compulsively readable story that starts as a conventional murder mystery and morphs, by degrees, into a horrifying supernatural thriller,” The Guardian said of Mayhem.

A virtuoso fantasy writer, Sarah Pinborough has won numerous awards including the British Fantasy Award for Best Short Story. In Mayhem Pinborough turns her attention to one of the most baffling and notorious crime sprees in Victorian times.

Already frustrated in their attempts to capture serial murderer Jack the Ripper, the detectives of Scotland Yard are suddenly confronted with a new monster, dubbed the Torso Killer for his habit of leaving behind neatly wrapped parcels of his victims’ body parts, minus the heads. With the terrible increase in mutilated corpses to examine, the highly regarded police surgeon Dr. Thomas Bond has lost the ability to sleep. True, a growing dependency on opium affords him some solace in his loneliest and most desperate hours, but he also fears the grip of the drug.

During Dr. Bond’s nightly tours of London’s underbelly in search of pharmaceutical respite from the horrors that plague him by day, he encounters a mysterious Jesuit priest scouring the opium dens himself, clearly in search of someone–or something. The doctor at first rejects the strange priest’s unnatural theories about the Torso Killer as an affront to scientific thought. But over time Dr. Bond’s opium-addled mind begins to crumble under the growing impression that there might be some awful truth to the Jesuit’s ideas.

As the police struggle to capture two serial killers, the troubled forensics expert begins to suspect that he may actually know the Torso Killer personally. If he is right, Dr. Bond will need all the strength he can muster to save his small circle of loved ones from falling victim to the bloody depravities of this twisted creature.

DESCRIPTION:

“I have waited so long for your return.”

In the English countryside, miles from the nearest town, there stands an old stone house. Nobody has set foot in the house for years. Nobody has dared. For it is said that even though the lady of the house is long dead, a face can sometimes be seen at one of the windows. A pale, dead face that waits patiently behind a silk wedding veil.

Seeking an escape from his life in London, Owen Stone purchases Ashbyrn House without waiting to find out about its history. As far as Owen is concerned, ghosts aren’t real and his only company in the house will be the thin-legged spiders that lurk on the walls. Even after he moves in, and after he starts hearing strange noises in the night, Owen insists that Ashbyrn House can’t possibly be haunted.

But Owen knows nothing about the ghostly figure that is said to haunt the house. Or about the mysterious church bells that ring out across the lawn at night. Or about the terrible fate that befell the house’s previous inhabitants when they dared defy the bride. Even as Owen starts to understand the horrific truth about Ashbyrn House’s past, he might be too late to escape the clutches of the presence that watches his every move.

The Bride of Ashbyrn House is a ghost story about a man who believes the past can’t hurt him, and about a woman whose search for a husband has survived even her own tragic death.

DESCRIPTION:

“This book is surprising, moving and terrifying” – Harry Hill

Every haunting has a design…

Winter, 1809. Lord Francis Marryman’s wife, Patience, is dying. In the madness of his grief, desperate to keep Patience’s memory alive, he’s compelled to build a memorial in the form of a remote country Hall. But as the plans move forward, Marryman Hall seems to become alive with more than just memories.

Francis, a brilliant mathematician and scholar, has built more into the walls than just bricks and mortar.

Autumn, 2018. Siblings Greg and Lucy Knights, owners of K&K Publishing Company, are seeking a venue to celebrate the 18th anniversary of their company’s inception. At such short notice, there is only one option that still has vacancies: Marryman Hall.

Winter arrives and as heavy snow falls, the guests drop out until a much depleted party of just 6 reach their destination and soon find themselves snowed in. As the guests’ private lives and demons are exposed in the increasingly awkward, claustrophobic atmosphere , the secrets of Marryman Hall and her history are also brought into shocking light from the darkness. In his grief, it’s possible that Lord Francis Marryman may have made a terrible mistake…

The General Theory of Haunting is the perfect ghost story to curl up with on the long winter nights – like Marryman Hall’s guests, you won’t know what’s truly happening until it’s way too late…

Richard Easter has worked as a professional writer since 1987, writing for radio, TV, print and music. Over the last 3 decades, he has written for many of Britain’s best-known TV programmes and presenters. The General Theory Of Haunting is one third of his first trio of books, The Snow Trilogy.
