'On the Anatomization of an Unknown Man (1637) by Frans Mier' won the CWA Dagger for best short story.

'The Caxton Private Lending Library & Book Depository' won the 2014 Anthony award for best short story.

Fans of THE BOOK OF LOST THINGS and NOCTURNES will be delighted with this superbly crafted collection - with two award-winning stories - of the supernatural from John Connolly.

A decade after NOCTURNES first terrified and delighted readers, John Connolly, bestselling author of thirteen acclaimed thrillers featuring private investigator Charlie Parker, gives us a second volume of tales of the supernatural. From stories of the monstrous for dark winter nights to fables of fantastic libraries and haunted books, from a tender narrative of love after death to a frank, personal and revealing account of the author's affection for myths of ghosts and demons, this is a collection that will surprise, delight - and terrify.

NIGHT MUSIC also contains two novellas: the multi-award-winning THE CAXTON PRIVATE LENDING LIBRARY & BOOK DEPOSITORY, and THE FRACTURED ATLAS, featuring The Wanderer in Unknown Realms, previously published as an ebook, developed here into a five-part novella.

NIGHT MUSIC: NOCTURNES 2 is a masterly collection to be read with the lights on - menace has never been so seductive.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Connolly never disappoints; his writing is always flawless, sympathetic and with beautifully drawn characters . . . Night Music is a worthy follow-up to Nocturnes, and there is much to enjoy here - and much to think about, too. A must for John Connolly's many fans. A collection of supernatural fiction to rattle your cage. -- Marie O'Reagan * Mass Movement *
Connolly knows how to unsettle, chill and outright terrify his readers . . . he displays his aptitude for crafting creepy supernatural tales -- Michael Berry * Portland Press Herald *
Connolly is a master of creating exquisite short stories, and Night Music is (if you'll excuse the music reference) "all killer, no filler!" The stories on offer range from charmingly whimsical to absolutely terrifying, with one or two being reminiscent of Clive Barker at his goriest best. * Starburst *

“Fantastical and otherworldly! (bookseller review) ”

Connolly really knows how to draw in avid readers- his first story is a bibliophile's dream of characters from books taking on physical form. Well done sir. You have my attention. Wonderfully old-fashioned and... More
