‘Creating convincing contemporary ghost stories is far from easy in the cynical, secular 21st century … but F. G. Cottam’s intelligent, atmospheric writing carries the conviction that surely sustained MR James back in the days of gaslight and fog.’

Phil Rickman, bestselling author of the Merrily Watkins series 

F.G. Cottam is the award-winning novelist responsible for nine paranormally themed thrillers including The House of Lost Souls, The Lazarus Prophecy and The Waiting Room.
