Backstreets is a novel by Australian horror writer Rob Hood (Hodder Headline, 1999). It is effectively an urban ghost story, its plot centering on a young man named Kel who wakes from a coma to find that his friend Bryce is dead, and is thereafter plagued by strange dreams, which draw him to the city’s backstreets. It is a profoundly felt work based largely on the accidental death of Hood’s stepson Luke.
