Product Details


Financial Times pick for top 5 sci-fi books of 2020

“The style, content and characters of this dark, witty and surprisingly moving novel make David Quantick a Kurt Vonnegut for a new generation.” 
Sarah Pinborough, author of Behind Her Eyes

“I hadn’t planned to read all of Night Train in one sitting, but I found myself doing just that. David Quantick’s novel sets up a vast mystery and barrels deliriously toward a conclusion you’ll never see coming like, I don’t know, some kind of railed vehicle that operates in the dark.”
David Wong, author of John Dies at the End

“A dark, nightmarish journey into a brand new sort of Twilight Zone, David Quantick’s Night Train is breathless, frantic, and creepy as hell. You’ll never see the twists coming.”
Christopher Golden

“Starting a trip on Night Train is like waking up in a scary game with no rules. I enjoyed trying to work out the parameters of this strange new world with Garland and exploring its ever-more-surreal carriages. When we finally start to discover where we are, we realise there’s no going back. Night train is pacy, amusing and gory and an entertaining companion on a dark journey.”
Louis Greenberg

“Darkly funny.”
The Independent

“Revels in strangeness and snarky dialogue.”
Financial Times

“An unnerving horror story…  Quantick delivers a fine sense of mystery.”
Morning Star

“Quantick presents a dark mystery of slowly uncovered memories in the midst of claustrophobic horror with skill and verve, creating a story that should satisfy any curious reader, genre fan or otherwise. Recommended for those who enjoy a little mystery or horror in their sf dystopias.”

“At times horrifying, at other times laugh-out-loud funny, and always entertaining, Night Train is a ride unlike any other.” 
Foreword Magazine

“Quantic holds the pacing taut and sustains the tension for 270 pages before finally revealing the truth. Meanwhile, his characters’ sarcastic deadpan helps.” “Captivating yet hilarious.” -New York Journal of Boonks 

“Either a stone-cold classic that will last for decades if not centuries, or, at the very worst, the best summer read you’ll have this year. ” – Sublime Horror

“Surreal and very clever read” 
Horror DNA

“David Quantick has a medical condition whereby he literally cannot be unfunny.”
Caitlin Moran

“David Quantick is one of the best-kept secrets in the world of writing.”
Neil Gaiman

“If you choose to only live in one alternative reality make sure it’s the one in which you read Sparks by David Quantick.”
Ben Aaronovitch

“Unfolds like The Da Vinci Code, only with a sense of humour and better grammar.” The Independent

“Ingenious, likeable, funny and entertaining.” The Spectator
