Waterstones Says

The first officially sanctioned sequel to Shirley Jackson's ghostly masterpiece The Haunting of Hill House finds a troop of actors holing up in the gothic mansion as events take a turn for the chilling.

Sixty years later, Hill House is occupied again.

Discover the landmark first novel ever to return to Hill House, officially authorised by the Shirley Jackson estate.

Playwright Holly Sherwin is close to her big break. Having received a grant to develop her new play, all she needs is time and space to bring her vision to life. Then on a weekend away, she stumbles upon Hill House - an ornate if crumbling gothic mansion, near-hidden outside a small town.

Soon Holly's troop of actors - each with ghosts of their own - arrive at Hill House for a month-long creative retreat. But before long they find themselves at odds not just with one another, but with the house itself.

For something has been waiting patiently in Hill House all these years. Something no longer content to walk alone.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Scary and beautifully written, imbued with the same sense of dread and inevitability as Jackson's original, A Haunting on the Hill is quite extraordinary. It's not pastiche, not ventriloquism. It puts me strongly in mind of a singer you love covering a song by another artist. It's that song but now it's being done by someone else. Remarkable.' - Neil Gaiman

'Beautifully creepy with the same claustrophobic intensity and sense of impending doom of the original, but at the same time with a great sense of progression, of the house having evolved over the years. It's so vivid, full of totemic menace and with a heart-in-your-mouth, can't-look-away frisson.' - Bridget Collins

'I absolutely loved A Haunting on the Hill, which snared me with its terrifying opening and relinquished me only on the very last page. Huge boots to fill, but Elizabeth Hand rose to the challenge with her darkly complex characters and a novel dripping in atmosphere and intrigue.' - Joanne Burn

'A Haunting on the Hill is as unnerving and disorienting as Hill House itself, a place where evil lurks behind every door. I was completely gripped by this terrifying and original tale.' - Laura Shepperson

'The lines of paranoia, art, and reality are terrifyingly blurred for our group of hungry and damaged actors cloistered within the mouldering walls of Hill House. Only the brilliant Elizabeth Hand could so expertly honor Jackson's rage, wit, and vision with a 21st century twist. The old place is as creepy, disorienting, and menacing as ever.' - Paul Tremblay
