Product Details


Praise for Something More Than Night:

“Kim Newman is the first to spot that between the worlds of Philip Marlowe and Frankenstein’s monster is an LA-noir sweet spot where crime and horror overlap. His odd-couple pairing of Boris Karloff and Raymond Chandler is a genius crime solving idea that pays off big time; hardbitten, tender and a killer double bill for film lovers.” – Christopher Fowler, author of the Bryant & May Mysteries

“Newman audaciously essays his own spin on the whipcrack wit of Chandler’s Philip Marlowe novels, carrying it off with panache” – Barry Forshaw, Financial Times

Praise for Anno Dracula:

“Stephen King assumes we hate vampires; Anne Rice makes it safe to love them, because they hate themselves. Kim Newman suspects that most of us live with them… Anno Dracula is the definitive account of that post-modern species, the self-obsessed undead.” — New York Times

“Compulsory reading… Glorious” – Neil Gaiman

“A brilliantly witty parallel-world saga… builds sure-footedly to bravura climax which entirely redefines ‘Victorian values’”- Daily Telegraph

“Anno Dracula will leave you breathless… one of the most creative novels of the year.” — Seattle Times

“Politics, horror and romance are woven together in this brilliantly imagined and realised novel. Newman’s prose is a delight, his attention to detail spellbinding” — Time Out

“A tour de force which succeeds brilliantly” — The Times

“A marvellous marriage of political satire, melodramatic intrigue, gothic horror and alternative history. Not to be missed.” — The Independent

“A ripping yarn, an adventure romp of the best blood, and a satisfying… read” – Washington Post Book World

“Powerful… compelling entertainment… a fiendishly clever banquet of dark treats” –San Francisco Chronicle

Praise for An English Ghost Story:

“An English Ghost Story is a terrific read!” –William Friedkin

“That oh-so-unassuming title does not equip you for the journey you’re about to undertake. Immersive, claustrophobic and utterly wonderful.” – M.R. Carey, New York Times bestselling author of The Girl With All the Gifts

“Kim Newman gets inside your head like pollen off a field of wildflowers; the pleasant idyllic turns full of suffocating dread. Thoroughly enjoyable, master storytelling.” – Lauren Beukes, bestselling author of The Shining Girls

“A masterful and often disturbing updating of the traditional haunted house story given a modern twist by an author who continues to push the limits of every genre he works in.” – World Fantasy Award-winning editor Stephen Jones

“All the elements of a classic spook story… beautifully written” –SFX

“With An English Ghost Story, Kim Newman shows that he can’t help himself when he tackles a genre, he reinvents it. This time it’s the haunted house novel, given a radical makeover that both references the past and looks to the future… suffice it to say that tales of terrifying dwellings will never be the same again.” – The Independent
