Description

These selected terrors range from the speculative to supernatural horror, encompass the infernal and the occult, and include stories inspired by H. P. Lovecraft, Robert Aickman and Ramsey Campbell.
Hasty for the Dark is the second short story collection from the award-winning and widely appreciated British writer of horror fiction, Adam L. G. Nevill. The author's best horror stories from 2009 to 2015 are collected here for the first time.

The hardest journeys in life and death are taken underground.
No blackmail is as ghastly as extortion from angels.
A swift reckoning often travels in handheld luggage.
Once considered inhumane and now derelict, this zoo may not be as empty as assumed.
A bad marriage, a killer couple, and part of a wider movement.
No sign of life aboard an abandoned freighter, but what is left below deck tells a strange story.
The origin of our species is not what we think.
In destitution, the future for revolution and mass murder is so bright.
Your memories may not be your own, and your life nothing more than a ritual that will compel you to perform an atrocity...
Praise for Hasty for the Dark:

"The nine tales are cleverly varied, exhibiting varied pace, chills which deal with the supernatural in both every day and altogether freakier situations, and other curve-balls which drop feet into other genres." Tony Jones, Gingernuts of Horror.

"These tales are dark, starkly violent, but also subtle and ambiguous, often at the same time." This is Horror.

"His stories weave their way inside of your head and plant seeds of doubt and terror. He is a master of creating oppressive, creepy atmospheres and of taking your imagination to places you would rather he didn't." The Grim Reader

"For a genre fan, there can be little better than reading the work of an author at the top of their game. I can't fault a single story in this collection." The Eloquent Page

"The stories are all enigmas and I love how hard my mind has to work to appreciate them. 5/5 stars." Carmilla Voiez

"A wonderful retrospective of one of the most gifted purveyors of horror fiction currently plying their trade." Anthony Watson.

Praise for Adam Nevill's horror novels:

"Adam Nevill is 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." Michael Koryta, NYT Bestselling author

"He has the rare ability to craft a nebulous atmosphere of terror, as well as to capture cinematic slasherpunk in the written word. Both are incredibly rare talents." Pornokitsch

"The sense of dread is immediate, with the reader's sense of foreboding increasing with every new page." Irish Examiner

"Readers will lose all hope of peaceful, undisturbed sleep. Highly recommended." Library Journal - Starred Review

"Nevill's talent for horror resonates ominously in every scene, almost as if the theme from Jaws echoes when a page is turned." Kirkus
