One of Graham Joyce's most enduring and disturbing stories is this, his 1996 novel, The Tooth Fairy - which won the 1997 British Fantasy Award and should have scooped a bunch of other awards too in my opinion! This is a great book and Joyce a woefully under-rated (outside the genre at least) writer. Check out my review of his latest novel, Memoirs of a Master Forger elsewhere in this issue.
"Seven-year-old Sam Southall loses a tooth, and that night he's visited by a sinister, rank, foul-mouthed mercurial Tooth Fairy, a demonic being that apparently only he can see, but whose malignant influence spills over onto his family and friends."
