**Thank you to the author, Adam Nevill for sending me a copy of this book.**
I will always be here for experimental literature, like House of Leaves by Mark Z Danielewski or If on a Winter’s Night a Traveler by Italo Calvino (or anything else of his). Wyrd and Other Derelictions by Adam Nevill is certainly an experiment in literature, and a successful one at that. Seven short horror stories, no characters, no dialogue, just the reader and a narrator traveling through seven different locations. Before our arrival, catastrophic events took place, and we are only here for the aftermath, talk about being late to the party. We can only guess at what happened based on the bizarre and gruesome remains. In each of these stories, Adam has created an unsettling atmosphere with a narrator who only wants to show us the scenery, luring us onwards. If you need a bit of creepiness, if you want to travel a world essentially alone, if you want to experience the aftermath, then read this.
