The Fear

A Pandemic Horror Novel

By Spencer Hamilton

Two women quarantined together. A world falling into chaos.

When a virus sweeps across the globe, Ash and Jack must each face their fears. Married and isolated in one small apartment, each woman grows restless, claustrophobic and paranoid.

As the horror outside their door ramps up to apocalyptic levels, inside Jack is slowly unraveling. She shuts herself away and fears everything. Fears the virus has crawled its way inside, down her throat, into the lining of her stomach. Ash is afraid, too–afraid of what her increasingly erratic wife will do to her.

In a pandemic none of us are ready for, should we fear the outside world . . . or what’s waiting within?

From the author who brought you stories of literary horror and weird in Kitchen Sink comes Spencer Hamilton’s debut novel, The Fear.

“Hamilton not only offers a twisted commentary on the world as it is right now, but just how much worse it could be: he flits from body horror to tense, psychological drama with the turn of a page and ramps it all the way up to 11 for a gruesome, perfect finale.”–Nick Harper, author of This Lonely Carcass Song

“Think you can fair well in a pandemic? Think again. Spencer Hamilton’s The Fear will take you through the apocalyptic ride of your life. An eerie yet relatable twist on the 2020 experience, it is the must-read of the year. How long do you think you can last until The Fear completely consumes you?”
–Mona Kabbani, author of The Bell Chime and Vanilla
