Twenty-five tales of horror and the weird, stories that encapsulate the dark, the desolate and the downright creepy. Stories that will send that quiver of anticipation and dread down your spine and stay with you long after the lights have gone out.
Who is Len Binn, a comedian or something worse? What secrets are locked away in Le Trénébreuse? The deadline for what? Who are the little people, the garbage men, the peelers? What lies behind the masks? And what horrors are found down along the backroads?
With stories by Ramsey Campbell, Storm Constantine, Stephen Laws, Samantha Lee, Stan Nicholls, Tony Richards and many, many others.
That fine connoisseur of horror fiction, James Everington, has selected five stories from The Alchemy Press Book of Horrors among his picks from 2018. You can see the selection on James’ Scattershot Writing website. The five stories he selects are those by Ramsey Campbell, Cate Gardner, Ralph Robert Moore, Marie O’Regan and Madhvi Ramani. Well done … but we at Alchemy wish to state, categorically, that we love all 25 tales in the anthology. Horrors is available in print and eBook (various formats) versions.
