The Hyde Hotel (of horror)

The Hyde Hotel looks almost exactly as you’d expect it to: a faceless, budget hotel in a grey city you are just passing through. A hotel aimed at people travelling alone, a hotel where you know so little about your fellow guests that they could be anyone… and where, perhaps, so could you. But sometimes things are hiding in plain sight, and not everyone who stays at The Hyde gets a good night’s sleep…

It makes me happy to announce that my short story ‘Housekeeping’, appears in a new anthology called The Hyde Hotel which you can order here from Black Shuck Books. Edited by James Everington and Dan Howarth, it collects together several writers with whom I’m delighted to share pages. Here’s the table of contents:

Table of Contents

  • CHECKING IN  by James Everington
  • THE VIEW FROM THE BASEMENT  by Alison Littlewood
  • NIGHT PORTERS  by Iain Rowan
  • TICK BOX  by Dan Howarth
  • THE EDIFICE OF DUST  by Amelia Mangan
  • LOST AND FOUND  by S P Miskowski
  • HOUSEKEEPING  by Ray Cluley
  • SOMETHING LIKE BLOOD  by Alex Davis
  • THE COYOTE CORPORATION’S MISPLACED SONG  by Cate Gardner
  • WRATH OF THE DEEP  by Simon Bestwick
  • THE SEALED WINDOW  by Mark West
  • THE BLUE ROOM  by V H Leslie
  • CHECKING OUT  by James Everington

‘Housekeeping’ is an oblique story in which perhaps the reader’s imagination provides the greatest horror. It all depends on what they read into a note left behind by one of the guests…

  1. OMG I can’t keep up… You’re not going to turn into a Stephen King of British publishing are you? Now seeking this one in my bookstore (asking for it sometimes GETS it ordered for the shelves and I am determined to foster some demand…) I can’t wait to read this one!
