Award-winning author Ursula Vernon, writing as T. Kingfisher, presents a terrifying tale of hidden worlds and monstrous creations.


Recently divorced and staring down the barrel of moving back in with her parents, Carrot really needs a break. And a place to live. So when her Uncle Earl, owner of the eclectic Wonder Museum, asks her to stay with him in exchange for cataloguing the exhibits, of course she says yes.


The Wonder Museum is packed with taxidermy, shrunken heads, and an assortment of Mystery Junk. For Carrot, it s not creepy at all: she grew up with it. What s creepy is the hole that s been knocked in one of the museum walls, and the corridor behind it. There s just no space for a corridor in the museum s thin walls or the concrete bunker at the end of it, or the strange islands beyond the bunker s doors, or the whispering, unseen things lurking in the willow trees.


Carrot has stumbled into a strange and horrifying world, and They are watching her. Strewn among the islands are the remains of Their meals and Their experiments. And even if she manages to make it back home again, she can't stop calling Them after her...

  • "Can horror even be this rollicking, this fun, while still delivering on the creepiness, the dread, the ick? In Kingfisher's hands, it can." – Stephen Graham Jones, author of The Only Good Indians.


    "The Hollow Places is gripping, bold, sharply witty, inventive and most of all terrifying! It s every bit as unmissable as The Twisted Ones. T. Kingfisher most definitely has a new fan!" – Alison Littlewood, author of Mistletoe and A Cold Season.


    "Just like in The Twisted Ones [Kingfisher] riffs on established masters of the genre but uses them to build an original and compelling hinterland world populated by nightmarish figures that haunt you long after you've finished" – James Brogden, author of Hekla's Children
