Teaser Tuesdays: Wylding Hall

This week my teaser lines come from Wylding Hall, by Elizabeth Hand (Open Road Integrated Media, February 2015).
And now I could hear another sound -- a kind of slithering, like something being slowly dragged up the steps.
Or something dragging itself....The dank air grew putrid, until I gagged and clapped my hand to my mouth. (Loc.970 of the Kindle edition)
I feel like I've stumbled into an H.P. Lovecraft story here. But this tale is a little more complicated (and better written) than any Lovecraft I've read. And just as eerie.

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Jenn at A Daily Rhythm. If you'd like to read more teasers, or take part yourself, just head on over to her blog.

And please feel free to leave me a link to your Teaser Tuesday post in your comment here.


  1. Oh, I love excerpts that reveal sights, sounds, and smells! Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “APRON STRINGS”

  2. Great description! I'm wondering what's coming up the steps. And why does it smell putrid?
    My Tuesday post features Nobody’s Cuter Than You.

  3. Omg this sounds terrifying... I want to know more!! I love scary stories and even gothic ones if they're done right! The cover for this book is stunning as well! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a great week and that I see you at ABEA!

Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
