This week my teaser lines come from The Silence of Ghosts, by Jonathan Aycliffe -- one of several spooky books I've read lately.
We opened the door and made for the hallway. The sound was louder here, and when I looked up the staircase I could make out a shape, large and inhuman, as it thumped and slithered its way down. (p.94 / loc. 1490)Ah, yes -- slithering on the stairs. Sounds like Lovecraft, yes? I actually enjoyed this one quite a lot, but I've really got to get away from all these nameless horrors for a while.
