Some tales told only in whispers.
Under the paper thin veneer of our sanity is a world that exists. Hidden just beyond in plain sight, waiting to consume you should you dare stray from the street-lit paths that sedate our fears.
For centuries the Black Room has stored stories of these encounters, suppressing the knowledge of the rarely seen. Protecting the civilised world from its own dark realities.
The door to the Black Room has once again swung open to unleash twenty four masterful tales of the macabre from the twisted minds of a new breed of horror author.
The Black Room holds many secrets.
Dare you enter… one final time?
In 2020 a further, expanded version, The Unheimlich Manoeuvre Deluxe Edition, was released with additional content in terms of fiction, non-fiction and images.
Unheimlich Manoeuvres In The Dark, collects together all of this additional material: the essay ‘Creative Evocations of Uncanny Domestic Spaces,’ five new stories, three of which are published for the first time (‘Haunted By The Ghost,’ ‘That Thing I Did,’ ‘The Wrong House,’ ‘Possession,’ ‘I Wait For You’), an original print and piece, ‘Remembering Wildgoose Lodge,’ and complete story notes for all tales featured in the Deluxe Edition.
In these stories, a coma patient wakes to find herself replaced by a doppelgänger, a ghost state reflects doubles of both houses and inhabitants, a suburban enclave takes control of its trespassers, and a beaten woman exacts revenge.
Just as the Heimlich Manoeuvre restores order, health and well-being, The Unheimlich Manoeuvre does quite the opposite.
This new edition contains revised versions of the original stories and a brand new tale, Something Nasty In The Woodpile.
"A modern-day gothic whose Kafkaesque otherworldly stories are beautifully disturbing." - Lol Tolhurst
What can Father Divine do when a nun confesses a disturbing secret?
Bill has always lived in his parent’s basement. Nothing
odd about that... is there?
How can Eleanor bear watching her old love Paul, hidden as she is at the bottom of his garden?
How can Sarah’s suddenly bottomless bag be full of bees?
What can forgotten gods do? Go clubbing obviously.
The stories in this book explore secrets, doomed relationships, and madness, inspired by the sad fate of the first Mrs Rochester in Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre. Deranged and hidden away by her husband, Mrs Rochester haunts the corridors of Thornfield Hall, and eventually destroys it.
The authors were not required to write directly about Mrs Rochester, Jane Eyre or the Brontës, but all the stories had to contain a deep, dark secret, insanity or ill-fated love.
And what a wild mix they came up with. Some of the stories in this book are fantastical and some are realistic. Some are set in the past and others are contemporary. There’s a wide mix of genres. But they all have a hint of the gothic and a tinge of strangeness.
Just the thing to read while hidden away in your own attic...
You are followed.
You are watched.
Suppress your thoughts.
Do as they say.
You stand as one against them all.
What happens when every aspect of your life is managed, manipulated, and controlled by someone else. Everyone is guaranteed the opportunity to suffer equally for the greater good in this dystopian society.
You become weary in your helplessness and have no voice in what happens to you, your family, friends and neighbors.
Your possessions, your body, and even your thoughts, belong to them and not yourself. What will you do?
Jump on board and witness how the landscape has changed as we ride the rails of the Dystopian Express.

This book brings together a carefully selected range of contemporary disciplinary approaches to new areas of Gothic inquiry. Moving beyond the representational and historically based aspects of literature and film that have dominated Gothic studies, this volume both acknowledges the contemporary diversification of Gothic scholarship and maps its changing and mutating incarnations. Drawing strength from their fascinating diversity, and points of correlation, the varied perspectives and subject areas cohere around a number of core themes — of re-evaluation, discovery, and convergence — to reveal emerging trends and new directions in Gothic scholarship. Visiting fascinating areas including the Gothic and digital realities, uncanny food experiences, representations of death and the public media, Gothic creatures and their popular legacies, new approaches to contemporary Gothic literature, and re-evaluations of the Gothic mode through regional narratives, essays reveal many patterns and intersecting approaches, forcefully testifying to the multifaceted, although lucidly coherent, nature of Gothic studies in the 21st Century. The multiple disciplines represented — from digital inquiry to food studies, from fine art to dramaturgy — engage with the Gothic in order to offer new definitions and methodological approaches to Gothic scholarship. The interdisciplinary, transnational focus of this volume provides exciting new insights into, and expanded and revitalised definitions of, the Gothic and its related fields.
