Down the road from a working-class British pub, along the brick wall of a narrow alley, if the conditions are exactly right, you ll find the entrance to Slade House. A stranger will greet you by name and invite you inside. At first, you won t want to leave. Later, you ll find that you can t. Every nine years, the house s residents an odd brother and sister extend a unique invitation to someone who s different or lonely: a precocious teenager, a recently divorced policeman, a shy college student. But what really goes on inside Slade House? For those who find out, it s already too late. . . .
Spanning five decades, from the last days of the 1970s to the present, leaping genres, and barreling toward an astonishing conclusion, this intricately woven novel will pull you into a reality-warping new vision of the haunted house story as only David Mitchell could imagine it.
Advance praise for "Slade House"

I gulped down this novel in a single evening. Intricately connected to David Mitchell s previous books, this compact fantasy burns with classic Mitchellian energy. Painstakingly imagined and crackling with narrative velocity, it s a "Dracula" for the new millennium, a "Hansel and Gretel" for grownups, a reminder of how much fun fiction can be. Anthony Doerr, author of "All the Light We Cannot See, "winner of the Pulitzer Prize
David Mitchell doesn t break rules so much as prove them inhibitors to lively, intelligent fiction. "Slade House" is a fractal offshoot of his remarkable "The Bone Clocks, "an eerie haunted-house tale that takes as much from quantum mechanics as from traditional supernatural lore, a spellbinding chiller about an unnatural greed for life and the arrogance of power. Dean Koontz, #1 "New York Times" bestselling author
What can t David Mitchell do?"Slade House"is a page-burning, read-in-one-sitting, at times terrifying novel that does for the haunted-house story what Henry James did for the ghost story in"The Turn of the Screw." It has all the intelligence and linguistic dazzle one expects from a David Mitchell novel, but it will also creep the pants off you. Adam Johnson, author of"Fortune Smiles"and"The Orphan Master s Son, "winner of the Pulitzer Prize

David Mitchell has long been acknowledged as one of the finest if not "the" finest literary minds of his generation, but he s also one of the most suspenseful, and he proves it in every gripping, vertiginous setpiece. Joe Hill, "New York Times" bestselling author of "NOS4A2" and "Horns"

Sharp, fast, flat-out spooky, "Slade House" is such a hypnotic read that you are likely to miss your subway stop in order to keep reading. And by you, I mean me. Daniel Handler, "New York Times" bestselling author of the Lemony Snicket series
Deliciously inventive and hard to put down. " Library Journal

Ingenious, scary, and downright weird . . . [a] delicious ghost story. " Kirkus Reviews" (starred review)"
