Editorial Reviews

Review

"WYRD and Other Derelictions is an inventive, fresh concept . . . I'm recommending it for horror fans who love getting sucked into elaborate exposition and world-building supplied with vivid imagery." Cemetery Dance

"Recommended reading for any serious horror fan or for speculative fiction aficionados who crave intelligence in their weirdness." Monster Librarian

"The imagery created is sublime and unsettling; symmetrically arranged stones, dimly lit rooms, buildings full of the dead ... The power of suggestion has rarely been so effectively deployed." Dark Musings

"Nevill guides us through ruined landscapes and describes the aftermath . . . Nevill then leaves it to the reader to piece together what happened. Each of these derelictions left me unsettled and I couldn't put the collection down. 5 Stars." Deadhead Reviews

"I thought it was terrific . . . Nevill's already unmatchable back catalogue just got stronger, with many more shades of sinister." Ginger Nuts of Horror

"I can't recommend this collection of stories enough. This is experimental literary horror and the experiment has exceeded all expectations. Read this and enjoy the horrific scenes Nevill has laid out for you." Horror Bound

"Quick, short blasts of nightmarish descriptions. Each of the stories details a scene that the reader seemingly stumbles upon . . . Completely unsettling." Kendall Reviews

"If you need a bit of creepiness, if you want to travel a world essentially alone, if you want to experience the aftermath, then read this. 5 stars." Sleepy Librarian

"I think that the first story in this book easily gets filed in my "scariest stories" section in my brain.

I give this book five huge stars." Page and Parlour (Nightworms)

"This collection of short stories is unlike anything you have read before." Gowsy (Nightworms)

"Unique, experimental, and majorly creepy." She Reads With Cats (Nightworms)

"An ominous tour! Walking through these spaces where very bad things happened was so chilling yet so interesting. 5 Stars." Marcy Reads (Nightworms)

"You are intrigued, you are disturbed, and you're not quite sure what is going on . . . Each has at least one scene (usually the ending) that will haunt me for a long time. 5 Stars." Reading Vicariously (Nightworms)

"Nevill manages to impose horror without even having a narrator or a dialog. Hell, there are not even 'people' here. Just the suggestion of the worst that happened at a moment in time. Think Polaroids of crime scenes with a supernatural twist and the reader floating around, inspecting, exploring, experiencing, reliving the moments." Undead dad Reads (Nightworms)

"The first story gave me goosebumps and utterly creeped me out and that feeling remained for the rest of the book. I'd recommend Wyrd, but with two caveats: 1) be ready for nightmares 2) go slow... these stories deserve to linger. 5 Stars." Reads With Dogs (Nightworms)

"This is an entirely unique collection of short stories! I would liken these stories to found footage horror films where you see events unfolding in real time. You don't get closure as to why and how the events occur, nor what happens next." Read By Dusk (Nightworms)

"Every story left me pondering what madness and terror had unfolded beforehand, long after I had finished each one. As always with Adam's novels and short fiction, I was instantly drawn in and smothered (comforted?) by a big warm blanket of dread." CJH Reads (Nightworms)

"The book strikes at the heart of everyone's fears - the threat of the unknown. Of being wiped out of existence by the supernatural or powers beyond our control." Sams Bookverse
