Denizen of the Dead

Denizen of the Dead is a protest against property speculation and a new take on the genre of haunted house horror fiction — in which investors’ ghosts homes really are haunted and those who buy them come to horrible ends. The book itself is a talisman that defends our communities against developers and it also features Spell Series by the w.o.n.d.e.r. coven. The symbols of this living spell are a lock and key designed to dismantle the neoliberal project and overdevelopment as represented by Clarendon Court — a block of 99 luxury flats on Golden Lane in EC1 that replaced 110 social housing units for key workers and with absolutely no social or affordable housing on site. All the stories in the anthology are set in this ‘City fringe’ safety deposit box in the sky, which is nearing completion and should be ready for ghost flat owners to take ‘possession’ of within a few weeks.

Denizen of the Dead features stories from:

Paul Ewen, Tariq Goddard, Iphgenia Baal, Chris Petit, Steve Finbow, John King, Chloe Aridjis, Tom McCarthy, Liz Rever, Katrina Palmer, Michael Hampton, Bridget Penney, Stewart Home and many more.

Available from Amazon platforms in the UK, USA and Australia, and a few other places.
