Ghost Moon, Ron Butlin


Set mostly in the early 1950s, this is a highly fictionalised account of an unmarried woman’s struggle with her family and with society at large during her pregnancy and the years following. This was unforgiving, post-war Britain. The novel is a tribute to her courage, her strength and determination.

Habit, Stephen McGeagh


Heightened realism and urban paranoia combine in short sharp shocker from new writer to watch. Habit combines gritty realism with elements of pure horror, and even comedy, to tie readers to its characters. It therefore has cross-genre appeal to reach a wider general readership.

He Wants (ePub version), Alison Moore


Lewis Sullivan, an RE teacher at a secondary school, is approaching retirement when he wonders for the first time whether he ought to have chosen a more dramatic career. He lives in a village in the Midlands, less than a mile from the house in which he grew up. He always imagined living by the sea. His grown-up daughter visits every day, bringing soup. He does not want soup. He frequents his second-favourite pub, where he can get half a shandy, a speciality sausage and a bit of company.

But when an unusual childhood friend appears on the scene, Lewis finds his life and comfortable routine shaken up.
