Let the Right One In

Title: Let the Right One In
Publisher: Quercus Publishing PLC

Oskar and Eli. In very different ways, they were both victims. Which is why, against the odds, they became friends – and how they came to depend on one another for life itself.

Oskar is a 12-year-old boy living with his mother on a dreary housing estate at the city’s edge. He dreams about his absentee father, gets bullied at school, and wets himself when he’s frightened. Eli is the young girl who’s moved in next door. She doesn’t go to school and never leaves the flat by day. She is a 200-year-old vampire, forever frozen in childhood, and condemned to live on a diet of fresh blood.

Handling the Undead

Title: Handling the Undead
Publisher: Quercus Publishing PLC

Something very peculiar is happening in Stockholm. There’s a heat wave on and people cannot turn their lights out or switch their appliances off. Then the terrible news breaks. In the city morgue, the dead are waking up….

David always knew his wife was far too good for him. But he never knew how lost he’d be without her until tonight when her car hit an elk. Now she’s gone and he’s alone. But when he goes to identify her body, she begins to move. It’s terrifying, but it gives David a strange kind of hope.

Handling the Undead is a story about our greatest fear and about a love that defies death.
