'Among the most important writers of contemporary British horror.' -Ramsey Campbell

The Feast Of All Souls

My fifth novel, coming in December 2016.

"A creeping, unsettling story of folk horror set in the north west of England, The Feast of All Souls is a thoroughly British tale in the finest traditions of Alan Garner and Graham Joyce."

The suburb of Crawbeck, on a hill outside Manchester, overlooks the woodlands of Browton Vale. Alice Collier was happy here, once; following her daughter’s death and the breakdown of her marriage, she’s come back, to pick up the threads of her life.

378 Collarmill Road looks like an ordinary semi-detached house. But sometimes, the world outside the windows isn’t the one you expect to see. And sometimes you’ll turn around and find you’re not alone.

John Revell, an old flame of Alice’s, reluctantly comes to her aid. The hill is a place of legends – of Old Harry, the Beast of Crawbeck, of the Virgin of the Height and of the mysterious Red Man – and home to the secrets of the shadowy Arodias Thorne.

Alice’s house stands at a gateway between worlds. On the other side of it, something has woken. And she and John, alone, stand in its way...
