The Deadfall Hotel is where our nightmares go, where the dead pause to rest between worlds, and where Richard Carter and his daughter Serena go to rediscover life — if the things at the hotel don’t kill them first.
The product of nearly twenty years of work, Deadfall Hotel is arguably Solaris’ most ambitious and striking title to date. Steve Rasnic Tem’s entrancing and powerful prose combines the atmosphere of Edward Gorey with the phantasmagoric richness of Mervyn Peake, creating a unique work of genius that will leave you spellbound.
This literary exploration of the roots of horror in the collective unconscious, experienced through a season spent in the ultimate haunted hotel, may be the Bram Stoker, British Fantasy and World Fantasy award-winning author's finest creation to date.
“Steve Rasnic Tem is a rare treasure”
– NYT bestselling author Dan Simmons
"Eerie, disturbing, yet strangely touching, you’ll check in but may never check out."
– Christopher Fowler
