Award-winning author Ursula Vernon, writing as T. Kingfisher, presents a terrifying tale of hidden worlds and monstrous creations

Recently divorced and staring down the barrel of moving back in with her parents, Carrot really needs a break. And a place to live. So when her Uncle Earl, owner of the eclectic Wonder Museum, asks her to stay with him in exchange for cataloguing the exhibits, of course she says yes.

The Wonder Museum is packed with taxidermy, shrunken heads, and an assortment of Mystery Junk. For Carrot, it s not creepy at all: she grew up with it. What s creepy is the hole that s been knocked in one of the museum walls, and the corridor behind it. There s just no space for a corridor in the museum s thin walls or the concrete bunker at the end of it, or the strange islands beyond the bunker s doors, or the whispering, unseen things lurking in the willow trees.

Carrot has stumbled into a strange and horrifying world, and They are watching her. Strewn among the islands are the remains of Their meals and Their experiments. And even if she manages to make it back home again, she can t stop calling Them after her

"Can horror even be this rollicking, this fun, while still delivering on the creepiness, the dread, the ick? In Kingfisher s hands, it can." --Stephen Graham Jones, acclaimed author of The Only Good Indians

"The Hollow Places is gripping, bold, sharply witty, inventive and most of all terrifying! It s every bit as unmissable as The Twisted Ones. T. Kingfisher most definitely has a new fan!" --Alison Littlewood, author of Mistletoe and A Cold Season

"The Hollow Places is replete with T. Kingfisher s trademark comedy-into-horror moments. Uncle Earl s Wonder Museum seems like the perfect place for Carrot to recover from her divorce, but maybe not so much. Within lie the ways between to unimagined spaces the hollow places where They wait." --Angela Slatter, author of the World Fantasy Award-winning The Bitterwood Bible and Other Recountings

"Just like in The Twisted Ones [Kingfisher] riffs on established masters of the genre but uses them to build an original and compelling hinterland world populated by nightmarish figures that haunt you long after you've finished" --James Brogden, author of Hekla's Children

"Convincingly blends the likes of Neil Gaiman s Coraline and Lewis Caroll s Alice in Wonderland with a unique horror vision which is soaked with LSD/acid. Highly recommended." --Ginger Nuts of Horror

"What made this story more than the sum of its influences was Kingfisher s real gift in conjuring up the religious levels of awe and dread inspired by the alien landscape and its denizens... The Hollow Places is a treat for fans of the weird, with an entertaining and refreshingly clear writing style and a likeable genre-savvy protagonist." --Sublime Horror

"A well written, page-turner of a horror story, which, time and gain, wrong-foots its readers until the final, nail-biting climax." --Blue Book Balloon

"It will have you holding your breath in tense moments, wanting to put the book down because of how frightening it is, yet desperate to read more to find out what happens next...A truly great cosmic horror." --Set the Tape

"A truly fascinating dichotomy of wonder and horror...Stunning, creepy, engrossing and brilliantly, brilliantly characterised by Kara and Simon. I can t recommend this enough for a very different, intelligent horror read." --The Book Beard

"[Kingfisher s] ability to take you somewhere so out of this world and make it feel so tangible is extremely impressive. This talent continues when she takes you to this other world, full of willow trees, rivers, and the most terrifying things I ve ever read about...My favourite horror novel of 2020." --Shroud Books
