Winner of the British Fantasy Award for Best Novella 2011

Something nasty is found in a village garden by an amateur archaeologist, something which has lain buried for centuries, and which has seen tribute paid to it by generations of local inhabitants. But what happens when the bones are removed and Humpty once more stalks the Earth…

With an evocative cover by multiple award winning artist Vincent Chong, the book also contains a special introduction and author’s notes by Simon, and a new long short story called DANGER SIGNS, about a group of children who investigate an abandoned military bunker, and find that everything there is not quite as dead as they expected.
