Cool books

A few years ago I read a book called Hush by Tim Lebbon and Gavin Williams. Very memorable, interesting and well written. It made my “keep it and read it again list”, and has survived several pulp purges over the years.

So the other day I was looking for some reading material and saw another Tim Lebbon book (Desolation) and bought it. It’s another really strange and superb story and has the same feel to it as Hush does. Then I found everything else he’s written and read that also.

If you’re into Poe/Lovecraft/Barker/Machen/King, pick up a Lebbon book. It’s good stuff. I think he’s at least on par with Barker (although The Hellbound Heart is of course spectacular and a modern masterpiece), but he’s not nearly as well known.
