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.

"Nevill is fast becoming Britain's answer to Stephen King." (Guardian)
"Readers will lose all hope of peaceful, undisturbed sleep. Highly recommended." (Library Journal)
"Nevill's talent for horror resonates ominously in every scene, almost as if the theme from Jaws echoes when a page is turned." (Kirkus)
It's been a while since I've read anything that actually frightened me and this did. Well written and interesting. Will be reading one of his novels next.
I couldn't even finish this book, so no.
I was looking for something a little bit more engaging.
I don't know. But he read this so monotone.
I stopped listening after three or four stories.
I want to return this as soon as possible.
