LoveReading View on Night Music

If you are an intrepid reader and delight in the creatively eerie, startling and spine-chilling, then some distinctive and perfectly crafted short stories await. Of course there are 13 tales, however there is nothing about the obvious here, as they range in length from one page to a novella, then float through history, fantasy and reality. ‘Night Music’ has the ability to encourage the imagination to go into overdrive, so it felt as though John Connolly was wielding a sharpened and potentially double-edged pen when I found further books, some alive with malice, lurking within the pages. I particularly enjoyed ‘The Caxton Private Lending Library and Book Depository’ which will remain vibrantly alive and functioning within my mind. So from the strangely weird and wonderful, through to bitterly sorrowful, and grimly formidable, here have gathered, waiting to provoke your imagination, some wonderfully readable tales of the supernatural.

One of our Books of the Year 2015.

Night Music Synopsis

A decade after NOCTURNES first terrified and delighted readers, John Connolly, bestselling author of the acclaimed Charlie Parker thrillers, gives us a second volume of tales of the supernatural. From stories of the monstrous for dark winter nights to fables of fantastic libraries and haunted books, from a tender narrative of love after death to a frank, personal and revealing account of the author's affection for myths of ghosts and demons, this is a collection that will surprise, delight - and terrify. NIGHT MUSIC: NOCTURNES 2 is a masterly collection to be read with the lights on - menace has never been so seductive.

Night Music Press Reviews

'Connolly never disappoints; his writing is always flawless, sympathetic and with beautifully drawn characters ... Night Music is a worthy follow-up to Nocturnes, and there is much to enjoy here - and much to think about, too. A must for John Connolly's many fans. A collection of supernatural fiction to rattle your cage.' -- Marie O'Reagan Mass Movement

'Connolly knows how to unsettle, chill and outright terrify his readers ... he displays his aptitude for crafting creepy supernatural tales' -- Michael Berry Portland Press Herald

'Connolly is a master of creating exquisite short stories, and Night Music is (if you'll excuse the music reference) all killer, no filler! The stories on offer range from charmingly whimsical to absolutely terrifying, with one or two being reminiscent of Clive Barker at his goriest best.' Starburst
