Holt House in the Hand


Holt House

Holt House is here, and I love the way it looks. A last minute cover design change moved everything from white to black, but the malevolent eye of the house inside a rusty trap remains. And the handy pocket size means I want to carry it around all day. It’s menacing and it has that new book smell. In short, it’s perfect.

If you don’t know anything about the Eden Book Society and their quest to return old horror classics from a mythical mail-order service to modern publishing, then read a bit about it here

And while I’m typing about strange houses with sinister old ladies inside, I should mention I wrote an article about Roald Dahl’s The Landlady for Storgy, which is available to read here.
