About When You Leave I Disappear

USA Today bestselling author David Niall Wilson's When You Leave I Disappear is a literary horror novella in which a bestselling author's imposter syndrome draws her into a darker and darker world from which she may never escape.


“David Niall Wilson is one of the horror genre’s best-kept secrets, which is unfortunate because he’s wildly talented and everyone who loves horror fiction should be reading him. His new story, “When You Leave, I Disappear,” an intense thriller of a tale that will haunt you long after you’ve finished reading, is a great place to start. And then go read everything else he’s written. You’ll thank me.”
Ray Garton, author of Live Girls

When You Leave I Disappear is a nuanced nested doll of a novella that always compels the reader to second-guess where reality ends and fiction begins, blissfully blurring the lines in between.”
Clay McLeod Chapman, author of What Kind of Mother
