by Martin Livings

Lothian Books/Hachette Livre
ISBN: 0734409699
RRP: AU$19.95
Available from: Infinitas, Booktopia, and Bookworm.

The small south-west Australian town of Tillbrook has a secret, one that has been kept for over a hundred years; the Dervish Carnival, which has been there for a century, is run by people who are neither human nor animal, but live in the woods and howl at night. But when David Hampden, a journalist on the downward slope of his career, visits the town with his younger brother, unemployed photographer Paul, that secret is threatened. When Paul is seduced unknowing into their world, David will get him back, whatever the cost. And the cost may be both their lives… and possibly even more.

Livings is a master of his genre and manages to draw us into his world, kicking and screaming though we might be. And his world is dark, and there are things in the darkness that howl and hunger.
Stephanie Gunn, Australian HorrorScope

Martin Livings is the winner of Tin Duck award ~ Best WA Professional Long Work 2007, and has been nominated for Best Novel ~ Ditmar Award, and for Best Horror Novel ~ Aurealis Awards.
