Review: The Grieving Stones (Gary McMahon)
Gary McMahon's The Grieving Stones is a small book that packs a big punch. It's soaked in atmospheric folk horror; the setting of Grief House and the Grieving Stones near it are beautifully evoked, as is the complex tangle of relationships in the house. Be warned: parts of this book linger (that punch dummy! that Backwards Girl!) and will disturb your sleep. Fine writing, and elegant, old-school horror.
