House of Small Shadows is the disturbing novel about a modern phobia from award-winning author Adam Nevill.The Red House: home to the damaged genius of the late M. H. Mason, master taxidermist and puppeteer, where he lived and created some of his most disturbing works. The building and its treasure trove of antiques is long forgotten, but the time has come for his creations to rise from the darkness. Catherine Howard can't believe her luck when she's invited to value the contents of the house. When she first sees the elaborate displays of posed, costumed and preserved animals and macabre puppets, she's both thrilled and terrified. It's an opportunity to die for. But the Red House has secrets, secrets as dreadful and dark as those from Catherine's own past. At night the building comes alive with noises and movements: footsteps, and the fleeting glimpses of small shadows on the stairs. And soon the barriers between reality, sanity and nightmare begin to collapse . . .

- Scott Smith, New York Times Bestselling author of The Ruins - Michael Marshall Smith, "New York Times" Bestselling author - Michael Koryta, New York Times Bestselling author of THE PROPHET Praise for "Last Days" Winner of the 2013 British Fantasy Award for Best Horror Novel Adam Nevill is a fantastic storyteller, a master of slow-building tension, and he's written a fever dream of a book. House of Small Shadows is chilling, disorienting, and deeply creepy. It has the feel of a cult classic, something horror fans will still be reading with immense delight fifty years from now.--Scott Smith, New York Times Bestselling author of The Ruins One of the most subtle and powerful writers of dark fiction - a unique voice.--Michael Marshall Smith, New York Times Bestselling author Adam Nevill is a spine-chiller in the classic tradition, a writer who draws you in from the world of the familiar, eases you into the world of terror, and then locks the door behind you. The House of Small Shadows grows darker and takes on more menacing life with each step forward.--Michael Koryta, New York Times Bestselling author of THE PROPHET "Adam Nevill is a fantastic storyteller, a master of slow-building tension, and he's written a fever dream of a book.

What an amazing book. Last Days has just about everything I look for in a horror novel; it is well crafted, has a strong plot with believable characters and the horror sequences get under your skin and into your mind. And the images just won't go away. You'll find yourself replaying scenes in your mind for days." --Fangoria on Last Days"There are moments in Last Days that are so frightening, it feels like Neville is giving your heart a bare-handed squeeze. And as a rudimentary crash course in the art of guerrilla filmmaking, Last Days is top notch." --Bloody Disgusting on Last Days"Deliciously chilling." --Publisher's Weekly on Last Days"Horror fans will revel in this appropriately chilling tale of modern-day murder and mayhem that stretches back several centuries." --Booklist on Last Days"Obsession and megalomania, sex and power make for a sophisticated, literate and well-crafted paranormal horror." --Kirkus Reviews on Last Days"This is what a horror book should be." --Suspense Magazine on Last Days -Adam Nevill is a fantastic storyteller, a master of slow-building tension, and he's written a fever dream of a book.
