The Haunted Book Summary

The Haunted Book by Jeremy Dyson

* What unspeakable horror glimpsed in the basement of a private library in West Yorkshire drove a man to madness and an early grave?
* What led to an underground echo chamber in a Manchester recording studio being sealed up for good?
* What creature walks the endless sands of Lancashire's Fleetwood Bay, and what connects it to an unmanned craft washed ashore in Port Elizabeth, nearly six thousand miles away?

In 2009 Jeremy Dyson was contacted by a journalist wanting help bringing together accounts of true life ghost stories from across the British Isles. The Haunted Book chronicles the journey Dyson, formerly a hardened sceptic, went on to uncover the truth behind these tales.

The Haunted Book Reviews

Dyson nestles in the little vacant chink between Roald Dahl and Borges * * Observer * *
Darkly surreal humour . . . seemingly innocent scenarios that veer into deep weirdness * * Daily Express * *
Dyson's one of those rare authors who can write from the heart while still creating something deceptively clever and complex * * Independent of Sunday * *
Gripping, twisted and devilishly enjoyable -- MARK GATISS, * * author of The Vesuvius Club and The Devil in Amber * *
The Haunted Book sets out not merely to entertain, but to embody a creeping menace in the text itself . . . Open if you dare -- Suzi Feay * * The Independent on Sunday * *
Genre defying . . . a boxing of stories within stories that reinforces the folkloric essence of ghost tales while also playing tricks as mind-bending as the image of a ghost caught in a photograph * * Metro * *
Keeps you guessing. The stories themselves are all wonderfully eerie . . . like the bookish version of walking through a haunted house at a fairground * * Savidge Reads Blog * *
A must have for fans of all things spooky -- Joel Watson * * Literature Works * *
