Unbecoming cover

    Identities in crisis, lives falling apart. Wherever Mike O'Driscoll's stories are set – downtown LA, Soho medialand or the Gower Peninsula – the light is fading to a dusky noir but his characters are still recognisable as people you know. Compassion as real as the horror: O'Driscoll doesn't do inauthentic. The monster within is pissed off.
    Nicholas Royle
    Mike O'Driscoll writes mysterious, sometimes convoluted, utterly chilling stories. I've been reading – and sometimes publishing – his work for many years and am delighted that it's finally available in this fine collection.
    Ellen Datlow

In these – appropriately – thirteen stories, Mike O'Driscoll plays with our imagination and expectations, subverting the horror genre whilst embracing its conventions. What results is a strangely brewed cocktail of terror: dark, dangerous, and sometimes downright dirty, O'Driscoll's stories get under your skin and into your head, where the freedom to prowl the peripheries of your consciousness becomes addictive. Uncompromising and unflinching, this is modern horror at its very best.
