"What comes to mind when reading this novel - chilling, beautiful, quietly shocking - is The Shining." (Arifa Akbar, Independent). "A beautifully written, deeply unsettling haunted house story that lingers with the power of a half-remembered nightmare." (John Connolly).
With an introduction by Tom Franklin (Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter), Little Sister Death is the stunning 'lost' horror novel of the late William Gay.
Inspired by the famous 19th Century Bell Witch haunting of Tennessee, it follows the unraveling life of David Binder, a writer who moves his young family to a haunted farmstead to try and find inspiration for his faltering work.
Beautifully written and structured, Little Sister, Death is a loving and faithful addition to the field of classic horror writing, eschewing any notions of irony or post-modern tricks as it aims, instead, straight for your soul.
