Reminiscent of Ray Bradbury and combining the atmosphere of Edward Gorey with the phantasmagoric richness of setting found in Mervyn Peake, Deadfall Hotel guides you through a season spent in the ultimate haunted hotel. Christopher Fowler calls it "eerie, disturbing, yet strangely touching." Told through the story of a widower who takes the job of a manager at a remote hotel where the guests are not quite like you and me, accompanied by his daughter and the ghost of his wife, Deadfall Hotel chronicles what happens when nightmares seek a place of sanctuary, where werewolves and vampires, cults and creatures which cannot be named take their holiday. This literary exploration of the roots of horror in the collective unconscious may be the Bram Stoker, British Fantasy and World Fantasy award-winning author's finest creation to date.
