An absolutely superb piece that encapsulates everything I have come to expect from a Gary McMahon story.

A worthy first of what I hope will be a long series of novellas. I loved the small format and it was perfect to pack on my holidays. Priced at a fiver, postage free I can see myself taking a chance on authors I hadn't heard of.

Its very good.

Without giving any spoilers, each section of it becomes more compelling than the one before. So its well structured

Good point, Ross. I feel the same way. The format is excellent. At Brighton, I heard other small press publishers admiring the format. And I agree about the pricing. I'd also take a risk on a writer that wasn't familiar to me, if I was intrigued enough by the synopsis.

Read it, loved it, reviewed it in my blog :)

An absolutely outstanding piece of short-ish horror fiction. I wish to God I could write like that.

Received my copy last week and read it yesterday. It's a wonderful size, with artwork that perfectly reflects the contents with its muddy, dark palette. The story was excellent, in my opinion, capturing the quality of an inescapable nightmare with vivid, disturbing imagery. I'd highly recommend it to anyone.

arrived today and i read it this evening in the bath with a couple of beers (the only way to read!) really enjoyed it and hoping to see more and it make a great addition to the TTA 'stable'. i thought the imagery was wonderful and also was nicely ambiguous in parts..

Just read it and loved it -a brilliant mix of psychological and supernatural horror. Really well done.

Just received my copy - haven't read it yet, but the production is excellent, really attractive. I think this a very exciting development for TTA Press, and I hope it's the first in a long series of novellas.

I've been meaning to post something on my own website about this, since I picked up a copy at the WHC in Brighton. Some of Gary's best writing - which is saying something. I particularly like the second section "Hush". Looking forward to more TTA titles if this and "Alison" are setting the standard.
