On Friday the 5th of June, there will be a full moon – beneath it, the Uafás Press edition of The Mongrel will come into the world. Originally published in 2018, this new (and revised) edition will be available in both Kindle eBook and paperback, which features stunning new artwork from Boz Mugabe.
As a bonus… the paperback edition will include a story set in the same universe called; Wolf Hill.
“Vivid, unflinching, evocative, and original, O'Connor's work
heralds the arrival of an important voice in horror fiction,
one to which you would do well to listen.”
— Kealan Patrick Burke
Bram Stoker Award-winning author of The Turtle Boy, KIN and Sour Candy
“O’Connor has given us a story full of life, love, hope, and fear, which takes us to the darkest chambers of our hearts. A bold new voice in horror fiction that shines like a diamond in a midnight sky above a dark sea of mediocrity. He gives me hope for the genre.”
— Ben Eads
Author of Cracked Sky and Hollow Heart
“The Mongrel is fast, creepy, tense. This is a no-brainer five star read that acts as a reminder of the continuous stream of literary talent Ireland has to offer.”
— Ginger Nuts of Horror
Stranded deep in the mountains,
Erin Greene finds herself in a battle for survival against the extreme cold.
Heavily pregnant and alone, the clock is ticking and giving birth isn’t her only fear,
for there is something sinister lurking in the dark hills...
And it is hungry…
