It’s now officially Halloween month, and if you’re an avid reader looking to get in the proper seasonal mood, there’s a spooky sounding tale heading our way in the form of Kim Newman’s An English Ghost Story. It arrives October 7th from Titan Books, and we have an excerpt from it entitled “Spring” right here.
Newman has won the Bram Stoker, International Horror Guild, British Fantasy, and British Science Fiction Awards and been nominated for the Hugo and World Fantasy Awards.

A dysfunctional British nuclear family seek a new life away from the big city in the sleepy Somerset countryside. At first their new home, The Hollow, seems to embrace them, creating a rare peace and harmony within the family. But when the house turns on them, it seems to know just how to hurt them the most—threatening to destroy them from the inside out.
