A horrifying masterpiece of science fiction

The Sound of His Horn is a classic novel of the uncanny. Alan Querdilion becomes a prisoner of war during World War II and then awakes, only to find himself in an alternative future in which the Nazis have won the war. Against a sylvan backdrop, the legend of the wild huntsman is revived and genetic experiments have created strange hybrids. Humans are hunted for game, haunted by the sound of the huntsman’s horn.

Quotes & Awards

  • “[For] devotees of Poe and Tennessee Williams…His book is a stunning tour de force, a horror-thriller with depth.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “No outline of mine can possibly convey the skill with which old man Sarban maintains suspense and builds up imagined fears upon unimagined horrors.”

    Daily Express (London)

  • “I frankly confess myself scared. Who ‘Sarban’ is I do not know, but I should not wish to take his imagination to bed with me. [It] would be indescribable, if only the author did not describe it with such conviction.”

    Observer (London)

  • “Don’t miss The Sound of His Horn…An imagination like that of Edgar Allan Poe and Bram Stoker…The quality of the writing is magnificent.”

    Melbourne Herald

  • “Here is no straightforward piece of make-believe. It is terrifying, horrible, something that runs athwart the processes of human nature and fills the reader with a dreadful wonder.”

    John O’London’s Weekly (London)

  • “The forests are alive with terror, and the story never loses its grip, despite its fantastic material.”

    Scotsman (Edinburgh)

  • “I have never read anything more completely terrifying…A fine piece of imaginative writing.”

    Western Mail (Cardiff)

  • “Extravagantly imaginative mystery and terror. Genuine Cold shivers. The book has a queer power to horrify in an inexplicable way.”

    Yorkshire Post

  • “Written with skill and energy.”

    Kingsley Amis, Booker Prize–winning author

  • “Persuasive.”

    Damon Francis Knight, Hugo Award–winning author
