I'm going to have to get second job. Anyone who says British horror fiction is in a bad way needs their head checking. This must be the tenth book I have seen in the last few days that I must own.
The old gods are dead …
The older gods have returned!
Before the American master of the macabre H. P. Lovecraft there was the Welsh wizard of the weird Arthur Machen, who filled his pages with tales of ancient evil.
Now, completing the circle, comes a collection of original tales from the land of Machen following in the footsteps of Lovecraft and his uncanny creations.
In What Others Hear by John Llewellyn Probert, a musician comes to rural Wales to convalesce in peace. But what terrible secrets hide behind the notes of the music he so loves?
Adrian Chamberlin shows us that seemingly innocent old traditions can conceal sinister intentions when dark forces use them to deadly ends inStranger Crossings.
In Charles Black's tale, a brilliant Welsh scholar finds the price of knowledge can cost you everything when he discovers the true purpose of that dreaded tome The Necronomicon.
And six more Lovecraftian tales of the otherworldly.
