The Tower by Simon Clark

Today I finished The Tower by Simon Clark, a fun and enjoyable haunted house novel. I learned some architectural vocab as well, like what the difference between a “banister”, “balustrade” and “handrail” is. Great unique setting, good characterization. I suppose since the setting itself is alive it’s also one of the characters. I found this copy in a thriftstore for $1, like many horror paperbacks it’s uncommon. Amazon only has two copies starting at over $10. Reading this made me want to go urban exploring in haunted houses.
