THE HOUSE OF SMALL SHADOWS INTERVIEW AT MY BOOKISH WAYS

Why write horror? What am I afraid of? The secret life of puppets and the near forgotten history of puppet theatre. Unstable characters ...

A problem with doing multiple interviews around a book release is repeating yourself, so I have tried to say something new about THE HOUSE OF SMALL SHADOWS for My Bookish Ways. My thanks in advance to the curious.

HOUSE OF SMALL SHADOWS INTERVIEW AT ARKHAM DIGEST

And if you can stand more of my infernal chittering about books, Justin Steele at the excellent ARKHAM DIGEST has interviewed me about THE HOUSE OF SMALL SHADOWS.
 
Topics include: where the book came from, literary influences for this book, ...the terror and enchantment of childhood, atmosphere, film adaptations, reconciling strangeness with story, horror in the short and long form, the horror fiction I like to read, the nature of horror ... and what's coming next ...
 
Thanks in advance to anyone who checks it out!
 
 

THE STORY BEHIND APARTMENT 16 AT UPCOMING4.ME

UPCOMING4.ME asked me for the story behind APARTMENT 16, because the book is now more widely available in the US. A few years ago, in other interviews, I wrote all about the circumstances behind this novel, but if anyone new to A16 has any interest as to why the book is twisted and f****d up, I'm sitting on the couch at the link below (and not talking about my mother ...)

THE HOUSE OF SMALL SHADOWS - MICHAEL KORYTA QUOTE

I'm now drunk and reeling from cover quotes from NY Times bestselling authors. I am a stumblewreck, a puppet with half its strings severed. The barkeep has just called time on me, "Hit the road you limey bum and take your small shadows with you", but I will indulge in one more quote for the road (and how often does this happen?) ... 
 
"Adam Nevill a spine-chiller in the classic tradition, a writer who draws you in from the world of the familiar, eases you into the world of terror, and then locks the door behind you. The House of Small Shadows grows darker and takes on more menacing life with each step forward." - Michael Koryta, New York Times Bestselling author of THE PROPHET.
 
 

THE HOUSE OF SMALL SHADOWS - JONATHAN MABERRY QUOTE

And from the mighty Jonathan Maberry, author of the JOE LEDGER novels, THE HOUSE OF SMALL SHADOWS has been blessed with:

"Modern storytelling ... and old school terror. Very scary, highly recommended." —Jonathan Maberry, NYT bestselling author.

THE HOUSE OF SMALL SHADOWS - MICHAEL MARSHALL SMITH QUOTE

It's like having a birthday today, because I have just become aware of more cover quotes for the US edition of THE HOUSE OF SMALL SHADOWS. I check to see if the book's ranking has moved to a seemingly respectable "six figure" position, and I see that one of my favourite authors, and the writer of the marvellous STRAW MEN, INTRUDERS and KILLER MOVE, has kindly said:
 
"One of the most subtle and powerful writers of dark fiction - a unique voice." Michael Marshall Smith, New York Times Bestselling author.
