Alison Moore

Writer of fiction,
from novels to a story on a postcard


Broad Moor

Broad Moor

'Moore's story 'Broad Moor' manages to remain controlled and believable, yet punctuated by all the tropes of a horror film... Rich with symbolism and expert ambiguity, 'Broad Moor' provides an intriguing taster of this writer's boundlessly original imagination.'
Sam Pryce, Sabotage Reviews

''Broad Moor' refuses to adhere to expectations, it moves back and forth, like the soughing of the sea. The story is packed with inference, intimation, intrigue... Nightjar has reached its tenth year in publishing. Both 'Jutland' and 'Broad Moor' are worthy additions to their landscape.'
Andrew Hook, Black Static #70

'Moore had me hooked on her writing, her ability to slowly and beautifully weave a tantalising story together, and her cruel (but excitingly effective) way of shutting me down when I thought I understood it all... Storytelling at its finest, complete with alluring language that leaves you windswept and dreaming of waves.'
Mariah Feria, STORGY

'The prose is sparse and delicate and the ending is not a punchline but an uneasy kind of elipsis. It's effective, stylish work which succeeds, without laying out all of its wares, in lingering long in the imagination.'
Jonathan Barnes, Brixton Review of Books
