Publisher's Summary

David Binder is a young, successful writer living in Chicago and suffering from writer's block. He stares at the blank page, and the blank page stares back - until inspiration strikes in the form of a ghost story that captivated him as a child. With his pregnant wife and young daughter in tow, he sets out to explore the myth of Virginia Beale, Faery Queen of the Haunted Dell. But as his investigation takes him deeper and deeper into the legacy of blood and violence that casts its shadow over the old Beale farm, Binder finds himself obsessed with a force that's as wicked as it is seductive.

A stirring literary rendition of Tennessee's famed Curse of the Bell Witch, Little Sister Death skillfully toes the line between Southern Gothic and horror and further cements William Gay's legacy as not only one of the South's finest writers but among the best that American literature has to offer.

    Story
    "It's ok but a bit messy in parts!"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Any true horror fans though there's better books in that genre.


    What could William Gay have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Scratched the distasteful violent Winnie Poooh scene, made me feel queasy and too much unnecessary sex scenes.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Not quite.


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Guess it proves that religious fanaticism of any world faith can be detrimental to people's state of mind and emotions when it becomes extreme!


    Any additional comments?

    Disappointed

    Story
    "The dirt you cannot burn...."

    I have been longing to read a genuinely frightening ghost story for a long while and this book certainly ticks all the boxes. This has echoes of The Shining, Blair Witch and the Exorcist with a hugely enigmatic and relentlessly evil entity haunting a bleak and desolate Tennessee farm. This is a fictional story based around a real American poltergeist (the Bell Witch) and William Gay conjures up a truly gothic nightmare filled with highly disturbing Freudian imagery. T. Ryder Smith is a natural for this material and his Southern drawl charges the atmosphere perfectly. Not one for the squeamish perhaps, but a joy for those enjoy a chill up their spine.
