So, just to share my favourites with you. Do find them, have a look.
The Coventry Boy, by Graham Joyce. Set during the blitz of November 14th, 1940, a dark, brooding character study, and part of a later novel. Very haunting.
The House on Maple Street, by Stephen King. I love the feel of this story, the wonder, awe, and fear of the children as they realise something is not quite right with their house, and it may not be a bad thing.
Snow, Glass, Apples, by Neil Gaiman. This is a dark reworking of the Snow White fairy tale, with a gloriously wicked twist.
The Clock Strikes, by Tanith Lee. Another fairy tale reworking, this time Cinderella, including a cameo by a certain hooded, skeletal figure who often carries a scythe.
