Urban Creatures

I just loved Sarah’s idea of what it means to be a ghost.

Tracy Chevalier, New York Times bestselling author 


Brilliant portrayal of a cruel disease.

Helena Frith Powell, international bestselling author 


Sarah writes beautifully and the sense of foreboding or unease is brilliantly conveyed. I've never read anything quite like it, although I'd suggest echoes of Mary Shelley or Edgar Allan Poe.

Clare Balding, award-winning broadcaster, journalist and author

In her third collection of short stories, Sarah Gray inhabits the edge of reality, exploring human relationships through a constantly changing and distorting lens. Troubled family dynamics generate tales of loss, anger and abuse; damaged minds construct fantasy narratives and an Elvis impersonator has to face up to his flaws. Dexterously inhabiting and defying form and genre, Gray’s stories shift from the unsettling, to the surreal, to the frightening, all cut with her characteristic black humour.
