Terror Bunny

Can’t believe I haven’t featured John Allison here before!  I’m a big fan, and Scary Go Round was how I was first introduced to his work.

Originally the story of some wackily irresponsible overgrown children dealing with all manner of mystical mayhem in a mid-sized English town, Allison has since shifted focus to the next generation in Bad Machinery, with reasonably responsible schoolyard sleuths investigating mysteries in that same town.  In between chapters of Bad Machinery he posts short stories in the same shared universe, and right now he’s following SGR breakout star Esther DeGroot in Uni.

Lots of options on where to start!  If you want a taste of classic Allison, may I recommend the French Easter mystery from 2008 sampled above…  Appropriate for the season!
