"Combining both the quiet horror of a Charles Grant with the all-out spectacles of a Stephen King, Clegg's storytelling has never been better. The Halloween Man is a brilliant novel, up there with the best of Straub, King, and Koontz, and one of the most original tales of terror to come along in quite a while." -- Edward Lee, bestselling horror novelist.

It begins in an old tenement with a horrifying crime. It continues after midnight, when a young boy, held captive in a basement, is filled with unearthly visions of fantastic and frightening worlds. How could his kidnappers know that the ransom would be their own souls? For, as the hours pass, the boy's nightmares invade his captors like parasites -- and soon, they become real.

Das neue Buch von David Mitchell, dem Autor des von den Wachowski-Geschwistern verfilmten, genre- und zeitenübergreifenden Romans «Wolkenatlas»: ein Schauerroman par excellence. Geh die Slade Alley hinunter - schmal, feucht und leicht zu verfehlen, selbst wenn du sie suchst. Finde das kleine schwarze Eisentor in der Mauer zur Rechten. Keine Klinke, kein Schlüsselloch, aber wenn du es berührst, schwingt es auf. Tritt in den sonnendurchfluteten Garten eines alten Hauses, das dort unpassend wirkt: zu nobel für die schäbige Nachbarschaft, irgendwie zu groß für das Grundstück. Ein Fremder begrüßt dich und führt dich hinein. Zunächst möchtest du gar nicht mehr fort. Dann merkst du, dass du es nicht mehr kannst. Denn alle neun Jahre, am letzten Sonntag im Oktober, wird ein «Gast» ins Slade House eingeladen. Doch warum wurde er oder sie ausgewählt, von wem und zu welchem Zweck? Die Antwort findet sich dort am hinteren Ende des Flurs, oben am Absatz der Treppe. «Slade House» ist ein raffiniert komponiertes Schauerstück. Und auch eine literarische Hommage an die großen Klassiker der fantastischen Literatur, von «Alice im Wunderland» bis zur «Rocky Horror Picture Show» – ein Buch wie eine Escher'sche Kippfigur, von einem der einfallsreichsten und phantasiebegabtesten Schriftsteller der zeitgenössischen Literatur. Mitchell zaubert bunt und lustvoll und verzaubert damit uns.
