The Unheimlich Manoeuvre by Tracy Fahey

The wonderful British Fantasy Award nominated debut collection by Tracy Fahey has been re-released by The Sinister Horror Company.

It’s a very assured first collection. It’s been described as domestic horror but it’s anything but mundane. Even the stories are set abroad have a very claustrophobic quality. Large events that affect whole communities are focused through the microscope of personal interactions, which are beautifully observed. Although there are twists, Tracy Fahey never plays for cheap shocks.

 

I’d recommend going to a panel she’s on if you ever get the chance. She’s entertaining, eloquent and knowledgeable.
