". . . the unknown world is, in truth, about us

everywhere, everywhere near to our feet; the

thinnest veil separates us from it, the door in the wall

of the next street communicates with it."

Arthur Machen

RECENT In-depth interview with Matthew G. Rees 


On Keyhole

'A gem of the uncanny. One of the best story collections I've read in ages . . . the Celtic lyricism was just right as an evocation of place and culture, and wit mingled with the chilling most effectively, casting a unique spell on this reader at least' - author and screenwriter Stephen Volk on Keyhole

'A stunning debut from a major new talent . . . superbly crafted and extraordinary tales' - AmeriCymru review of Keyhole

'This is a hugely recommended collection that marks Rees out as a writer capable of spinning tales of vibrant imagination and who is unafraid to peer into strange places'  - Wyrd Britain review of Keyhole

'His great stories are refreshingly different, he paints a startling and detailed portrait of a world slightly askew, and he knows how to cast a spell with a sentence'  -  The Short Story review of Keyhole

'One contemporary writer who I find genuinely interesting is Matthew G. Rees' - Peter Kenny in A Writer's Notebook

'a short, Gogol-esque masterpiece'
