Product description


The Loney is not just good, it's great. It's an amazing piece of fiction - Stephen King

Modern classics in this genre are rare, and instant ones even rarer; The Loney, however, looks as though it may be both - Sunday Telegraph

The Loney is a stunning novel - about faith, the uncanny, strange rituals, and the oddity of human experience. Beautifully written, it's immensely entertaining, but also deep and wide. A moving evocation of desolate wilderness and a marvel of complex characterization, The Loney is one of my favorite reads of the past couple of years - Jeff VanderMeer, New York Times-bestselling author of the Southern Reach trilogy

I can't remember a more confident debut: a mingling of horror, domestic strife and metaphysical ambiguities set against an arrestingly vivid landscape. Brilliant - Adam Thorpe

A modern classic: superbly eerie, beautifully human and immensely readable - Adam Roberts

The Loney is one of the best novels I've read in years. From the very first page, I knew I was in the hands of a master. Atmospheric, psychologically astute, and saturated with the kind of electrifying wrongness that makes for pleasurably sleepless nights. - Kelly Link

The Loney transcends its generic roots by virtue of its depth and subtlety, imbuing horror with an intimacy, flavour and scent, meanwhile suggesting that horror's true face is meaningless, indifferent - and brilliantly blank - Grace McCleen

Confident and beautifully written debut . . . moves from the strange to the downright scary. Comparisons to The Wicker Man will no doubt be made, but there are also elements of Sam Peckinpah's Straw Dogs, and the bleakness and youthful innocence of Iain Banks'The Wasp Factory. As soon as I'd finished the book I started over and re-read it. It was that - menwhostareatbooks
