Author and Scriptwriter
'Among the most important writers of contemporary British horror.' -Ramsey Campbell
A Hazy Shade Of Winter
- Alison Littlewood
My first short story collection, published by Ash-Tree Press. These are mostly my forays into more traditional ghost stories, although they're all pretty dark and modern in setting. The title story (which provides the image for Paul Lowe's amazing cover illustration) was reprinted by Ellen Datlow in The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror #18. You can still get copies of the hardback here, or it's available as an ebook here.
'Bestwick rarely writes much below his best, and maintains a satisfyingly even pitch across a variety of different, consistently well-realised settings.' Steve Duffy in All Hallows.
'A strong and engaging collection of tales that engage the supernatural but are ultimately about human fears, hopes, and courage.' -The Harrow.
'A true modern master of horror.' -SFSite.
