The Haunting Of Hill House Fans Will Want To Check Out This New Book

A Haunting on the Hill: A Novel brings readers back to the chilling world of the iconic Netflix series.


Netflix has no shortage of great content in its catalog, but The Haunting of Hill House (directed by Mike Flanagan) sits near the top of the pack. Offering a terrifying story about a family haunted by memories of their old home, the mini-series is one of the creepiest shows you’ll find on TV today. If you were a fan of the show (which is itself an adaption of a novel by Shirley Jackson), you’ll want to check out an upcoming novel that will take you back to the same nightmare-inducing universe.

Novelist and The Sandman creator Neil Gaiman called the book “scary and beautifully written,” as it offers a tale of isolation that should be thrilling to both newcomers of series veterans alike. Novelist and juror for the Shirley Jackson Awards Paul Tremblay had even more kind words to say about the book.

"The lines of paranoia, art, and reality are terrifyingly blurred… only the brilliant Elizabeth Hand could so expertly honor Jackson's rage, wit, and vision with a twenty-first century twist."

Whether you enjoyed the Netflix show from years ago or loved the original book by Jackson, A Haunting on the Hill: A Novel should be on your radar. You can preorder a Kindle edition for just $15, although consider springing for the hardcover copy that’s $27 so you can add the piece of art to your bookshelf. With Amazon's preorder price guarantee, you'll get the book for the lowest price offered between the time you order and release.

A Haunting on the Hill: A Novel will be published by Mulholland Books on October 3.
