The Unheimlich Manoeuvre is a collection of short stories based around ideas of the domestic uncanny  – the Unheimlich. The stories in this collection don’t fall into the conventional ‘haunted house’ bracket, but explore the psychological horror that occurs when home is subverted as a place of safety, when it becomes surreal, changes, and even disappears…

In these stories, a coma patient awakes to find herself replaced by a doppelganger, a ghost estate reflects doubles of both of houses and inhabitants, a shared paranormal experience abroad haunts both protagonists on their return home, a woman looks for the site of a Gothic atrocity, a housing estate takes control of its trespassers, and a beaten woman exacts revenge.

Just as the Heimlich Manoeuvre restores order, health and well-being, the Unheimlich Manoeuvre does quite the opposite.
