Join me for 30 Days of Horror in which we spotlight one horror book for each day until we reach Halloween!
This evening’s choice is a horror story collection by Adam Nevill. I haven’t read this yet, or anything by Nevill for that matter but I’ve heard great things about his work. I’ve actually had one of his books, Banquet of the Damned sat on my TBR shelf for a number of years so I have no excuse. But you know, it’s all part and parcel of being a book hoarder isn’t it!

In the big white house on the hill angels are said to appear.
A forgotten tenant in an isolated building becomes addicted to milk.
A strange goddess is worshipped by a home-invading disciple.
The least remembered gods still haunt the oldest forests.
Cannibalism occurs in high society at the end of the world.
The sainted undead follow their prophet to the Great Dead Sea.
A confused and vengeful presence occupies the home of a first-time buyer . . .
In ghastly harmony with the nightmarish visions of the award-winning writer’s novels, these stories blend a lifelong appreciation of horror culture with the grotesque fascinations and childlike terrors that are the author’s own.
Adam Nevill’s best early horror stories are collected here for the first time.
