One of her top ten ghost stories, as shared with the Guardian:
Dark Matter by Michelle PaverRead about the other entries on the list.
A perfect ghost story set in the frozen north of Spitsbergen (now Svalbard). Former science student Jack Miller sets out to change his depressing life as a clerk by joining an Arctic expedition to an island where the polar night will last for four months solid. But something is walking in the dark, and as expedition members drop away, Jack is determined to face it – alone. Michelle Paver is the author of the Chronicles of Ancient Darkness series for children, but Dark Matter is one for older YA readers and adults alike. Psychologically complex, and utterly terrifying.
