"The power of myth and the fallibility of memory propel two women in search of the truth into dark and devastating places. Ashworth and Hirst’s epistolary novella hurtles along as the distant past unscrews the hinges of the present. Terrific stuff." - Adam Marek
"A compelling hallucinatory tale of terror, where the uncanny influence of silent cinema reaches out of the past to overwhelm modern technology. It's an ingenious narrative that has many secrets to reveal and builds up a sense of genuine dread." - Ramsey Campbell
Winner of The Saboteur Awards 2017 Best Novella.
Orla Nelson used to be a famous writer and now she's seeking a comeback. Alice Wells wants to make something of herself before it's too late. In The Night Visitors these two women, connected by blood and ambition, investigate their ancestor Hattie Soak, a silent film star who fled the scene of a gruesome unsolved crime.
Told entirely via an exchange of emails, The Night Visitors is a story of ghosts, obsession and inherited evil. This novella traces the ways in which technology can hold and transmit our worst secrets and unspoken fears, and what happens when uneasy collaborations start to unravel.
Co-written by Jenn Ashworth and Richard V. Hirst, The Night Visitors is published by Dead Ink and available now.
