Lisa Tuttle: The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson

This month we are delighted to have our book of the month chosen by sci-fi, fantasy and horror author, Lisa Tuttle.
Lisa Tuttle has published novels, short story collections and non-fiction titles including Encyclopaedia of Feminism  throughout her career. In 1974 she won the John W. Campbell award for Best New Writer and in 1982 was awarded the Nebula Award for Best Short Story (The Bone Flute) which she refused making her the first and only person in history to do so.
The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson
A brilliant novel, and still after all these years my favourite story about a haunted house, because it’s not just scary, but is also a psychological study of interesting characters, and so elegantly, clear and cleanly written that it has always been a model for how I want to write. 
Thank you to Lisa for choosing this title. To see our previous Books of the Month, click here.
