Sarah Lotz and Louis Greenberg return to Downside, this time exploring the more medical aspects of weird. Farrell, a wealthy, successful designer, wakes up in – horror of horrors – a public hospital, blind, with a gap in his memory. Less stable Lisa is in the same hospital to provide an infusion of much-needed cash to the South African public hospital system by undergoing a less necessary procedure, and the two of them end up in the Ward, a Downside institution where surgery serves a rather different purpose. The Ward is more specific and therefore more disturbing than The Mall.

A shopping mall is terrifying enough without the dark imaginations of Sarah Lotz and Louis Greenberg. It only gets worse when you go through the wrong door and end up Downside, a place which plays by different rules. It’s difficult to speak too much about these books without giving much away, but The Mall brings together Dan, a bookseller stuck in a miserable dead-end job with Rhoda, a reluctant, cocaine-addicted babysitter who’s lost her charge. Hilarity does not ensue; they end up Downside, a world twisted from our own, where nothing makes sense unless you understand asdfthe rules. Seriously creepy.
