"A grotesque romp! It takes up residence beneath your skin and refuses to leave."--Caitlin Starling, USA Today bestselling author of The Death of Jane Lawrence

"Creepy, claustrophobic, and completely entertaining, What Moves the Dead left me delightfully repulsed. I adored this book!"--Erin A. Craig, New York Times bestselling author of House of Salt and Sorrows

"This gothic retelling is a hair-raising, enthralling read."--Buzzfeed

"The distilled terror of T. Kingfisher's What Moves the Dead insinuates itself into the reader's nervous system from the very first sentence and quickly overtakes their sense of self control. I was powerless against this novella's pestilential pull and had to finish it in one sitting . . . or maybe it finished me."--Clay McLeod Chapman, author of Ghost Eaters

"Thoroughly creepy and utterly enjoyable."--Publishers Weekly

"T. Kingfisher spins biting wit, charm and terror into a tale that will make your skin crawl. Poe would be proud!"--Brom, author of Slewfoot

"Dissects the heart of Poe's most famous tale and finds a wholly new mythology beating inside it . . . Pure fun."--Andy Davidson, author of The Boatman's Daughter

"An infectious new spin on classic Gothic horror."--Booklist

"What Moves the Dead is a must-read, period."--Jordan Shiveley, author of Hot Singles In Your Area

"A gothic delight!"--Lucy A. Snyder, author of Sister, Maiden, Monster

"A fluid technicolor reimagining of Poe's "House of Usher" that takes no prisoners . . . Not to be missed."--Brian Evenson, author of Last Days

"Perfectly hair-raising in all the right ways."--Premee Mohamed, author of Beneath the Rising

"Readers will be rapt as the tension builds to near bursting levels and the true meaning of the title comes into full, skin-crawling view."--Library Journal
