Praise for Personal Demons

“Fowler consistently scores points with his suave, mocking and ultimately inclusive voice. His latest collection of short stories shows he has lost none of his venom.”


“Good, gory fun.”

Irish Times

“Ian McEwan used to mine a similar seam. Fowler does it better.”


“Incarceration, incantations, revenge, romance and the end of the world - twice. PERSONAL DEMONS are Christopher Fowler's tales of the fantastic and the wilder side of modern urban living. They reflect the rich and various talents of a writer called 'ghoulishly irresistible'.”
