In 2009 Jeremy Dyson was contacted by a journalist wanting help bringing together accounts of true life ghost stories from across the British Isles. The Haunted Book chronicles the journey Dyson, formerly a hardened sceptic, went on to uncover the truth behind these tales.

If you like Jeremy Dyson you might also like to read books by Phil Rickman, Susan Hill and Aleister Crowley.

Synopsis

The Haunted Book by Jeremy Dyson

What unspeakable horror glimpsed in the basement of a private library in West Yorkshire drove a man to madness and an early grave? What led to an underground echo chamber in a Manchester recording studio being sealed up for good? What creature walks the endless sands of Lancashire's Fleetwood Bay, and what connects it to an unmanned craft washed ashore in Port Elizabeth, nearly six thousand miles away?

Reviews

'Dyson nestles in the little vacant chink between Roald Dahl and Borges' Observer

'Darkly surreal humour ... seemingly innocent scenarios that veer into deep weirdness' Daily Express

'Dyson's one of those rare authors who can write from the heart while still creating something deceptively clever and complex' Independent of Sunday
