The Haunted Book

by Jeremy Dyson

eBooks of the Month Horror

The Haunted Book Synopsis

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?

The Haunted Book Press 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
