Some Will Not Sleep: Selected Horrorsby Adam Nevill
A bestial face appears at windows in the night.
In the big white house on the hill angels are said to appear.
A forgotten tenant in an isolated building becomes addicted to milk.
A strange goddess is worshipped by a home-invading disciple.
The least remembered gods still haunt the oldest forests.
Cannibalism occurs in high society at the end of the world.
The sainted undead follow their prophet to the Great Dead Sea.
A confused and vengeful presence occupies the home of a first-time buyer...
In ghastly harmony with the nightmarish visions of the award-winning writer's novels, these stories blend a lifelong appreciation of horror culture with the grotesque fascinations and childlike terrors that are the author's own.
Adam Nevill's best early horror stories are collected here for the first time.
Praise for Adam Nevill's novels:
"Modern storytelling ... and old school terror. Very scary, highly recommended" - Jonathan Maberry, NYT bestselling author
"Adam Nevill is a spine-chiller in the classic tradition, a writer who draws you in from the world of the familiar, eases you into the world of terror, and then locks the door behind you" - Michael Koryta, NYT Bestselling author
"One of the most subtle and powerful writers of dark fiction - a unique voice" - Michael Marshall Smith, NYT Bestselling author)
"Chilling, disorienting, and deeply creepy" - Scott Smith (author of 'The Ruins' on 'House of Small Shadows')
"Nevill is fast becoming Britain's answer to Stephen King" - Guardian
"The sense of dread is immediate, with the reader’s sense of foreboding increasing with every new page" - Irish Examiner
"Readers will lose all hope of peaceful, undisturbed sleep. Highly recommended” - Library Journal (Starred Review)
"Nevill's talent for horror resonates ominously in every scene, almost as if the theme from Jaws echoes when a page is turned" - Kirkus
"He has the rare ability to craft a nebulous atmosphere of terror, as well as to capture cinematic slasherpunk in the written word. Both are incredibly rare talents" - Pornokitsch
"The images just won’t go away. You’ll find yourself replaying scenes in your mind for days” - Fangoria
