Author and Scriptwriter

'Among the most important writers of contemporary British horror.' -Ramsey Campbell

The Condemned

‘An excellent collection of chilling novellas; deftly woven and gripping, never over-told or under-shivered. With a style containing elements of M R James, Lovecraft and that special something entirely of his own, Simon Bestwick is truly becoming a master of the macabre.’
- Sarah Pinborough

My third collection (fourth if you include Let's Drink To The Dead), consisting of six novellas, including the BFA-nominated 'The Narrows'. In settings ranging from the First World War to present-day sink estates, from lonely coastal cottages to underground caverns, from an artist's studio to a private boys' school, you'll meet a succession of characters who are, in one way or the other... condemned.

The novellas are:
Dark Earth
The Narrows
A Kiss Of Old Thorns
The Model
The School House
Sleep Now In The Fire

'An excellent collection of stories. I heartily recommend The Condemned, horror writing at its best.' -Dark Musings.

And here's the trailer, by the lovely Anna Taborska:
