“With this new novel, Kingfisher cranks up the creepy factor with strange portals that open the doorway for horrifying monsters that thrive on fear.”
Behind a hole in the wall of her uncle’s house, Kara discovers a strange bunker with cryptic words inside.
Pray they are hungry.
Newly divorced, Kara is now back home, and becomes obsessed with these mysterious words. As she explores the area, she discovers there are portals to endless alternate realities.
But she’s not alone. In these alternate realities, there are creatures, and they can hear our thoughts.
The more you fear them, the stronger they become.
Why we’re excited about this book:
Readers may not be familiar with the work of Ursula Vernon, but they should be aware of her pen-name T. Kingfisher, the name she uses when writing stories for grown-ups. She is the author of The Twisted Ones, A Wizard’s Guide to Defensive Baking, Paladin’s Grace, Swordheart, Minor Mage, and Nine Goblins among others. She is the recipient of the Ursa Major, Alfie, WSFA, Nebula, Sequoyah, Coyotl, and Hugo awards. With this new novel, Kingfisher cranks up the creepy factor with strange portals that open the doorway for horrifying monsters that thrive on fear. Stephen Graham Jones (Mongrels, The Only Good Indians) says: “Can horror even be this rollicking, this fun, while still delivering on the creepiness, the dread, the ick? In Kingfisher’s hands, it can.”
Forthcoming 6 October 2020 from Gallery/Saga Press, The Hollow Places by T. Kingfisher is available for pre-order now.
