A Haunting on the Hill by Elizabeth Hand

Staff Pick

Hand, a Shirley Jackson Award winner, was authorized by the gothic queen's estate for this return to Hill House. Her tale is as dark and beautiful as the original from 60 years ago, and, just as Shirley introduces Eleanor Vance, so Elizabeth gives us Holly Sherwin, who is as eager as her predecessor to let Hill House enter her life. In this case, Holly assembles a cast of actors to workshop her new play and join her in renting the foreboding house, which is the perfect setting to rehearse a drama about a witch. But Hill House is malevolent and vile, and when Holly and her team ignore the locals’ insistence that they leave, the troupe is surrounded by decades of shadows that they may not escape.
