London Gothic

In his fourth short story collection, an exploration of the dark side of modern London, Nicholas Royle redefines urban Gothic for the twenty-first century. Fifteen stories, dating from 2000 to the present day and including seven brand-new pieces, demonstrate Royle’s range of styles and techniques. Often writing against a background of film, art or literature, he unearths unease in the streets of Shepherd’s Bush, Hackney or South Tottenham, and creates uncanny effects with innovative, experimental forms.

London Gothic is the first in a series of city-based short story collections. Forthcoming volumes are devoted to Manchester and Paris.



Vincent de Swarte's Pharricide, first English translation by Nicholas Royle.

‘A paean to solitude, imagination and longing, and a signal warning of their dangers’
Alice Thompson

Some dreams you struggle to remember. Vincent de Swarte’s first novel is an unforgettable nightmare of tender brutality and violent desire.
