A young boy’s life is upended after the arrival of his grandfather, who is hiding a terrifying secret in this sweltering southern gothic horror, perfect for fans of Cassandra Khaw and John Langan.


An eleven-year-old boy lives an idyllic childhood exploring the remote coastal plains and wetlands of South Carolina alongside his parents and his dog Teach. But when the boy’s eerie and estranged grandfather shows up one day with no warning, cracks begin to form as hidden secrets resurface that his parents refuse to explain.


The longer his grandfather outstays his welcome and the greater the tension between the adults grows, the more the boy feels something within him changing―physically―into something his grandfather welcomes and his mother fears. Something abyssal. Something monstrous.

  • 'Can a horror story be beautiful? Wild Spaces tells a terrible truth in the most achingly beautiful way.' —Alma Katsu, author of The Fervor.


    'Wild Spaces is an eldritch coming-of-age-story done right. It's lyrical, emotionally complex, creepy, and there's not a drop of poisonous nostalgia. I loved it and I can't stop thinking about it,' — Paul Tremblay, author of The Cabin at the End of the World.

    'Compulsive. Once I started, I couldn't put it down. Wild Spaces is reminiscent of Ray Bradbury and Robert McCammon, full of equal parts wonder and horror. Tense, atmospheric and visceral.' — A.C. Wise, Stoker and World Fantasy Award finalist
