"A collection of twelve very different horror stories, six original to this book. Author Reggie Oliver said that "Johnny Mains follows in a great tradition of horror stories which he knows and respects, but his stories have a power and strangeness which is all their own". And anthologist Stephen Jones said his fiction "would not have been out of place in the old Pan Book of Horror Stories". In his introduction to this volume, author Stephen Volk remarks that "These stories absorbed and disturbed me. And confirmed to me that Johnny Mains not only carries a flame for the old horrors, but wants to cause a bit of a conflagration of his own".
Not content with being an excellent anthologist, Johnny is also a rather fine author as well. Frightfully Cosy and Mild Stories For Nervous Types (FCAMSFNT), is the perfect place to begin, your education in the writing of Mr Mains.
