I live in Deptford, South East London, near the river Thames. I spend my days exchanging sarcasms with the local ducks and eating buttered crumpets. I’ve not been published before.

The Fiends in the Furrows: An Anthology of Folk Horror

“Back Along the Old Track”

What is your favorite season and why?
Maybe spring because the daffodils come out and they are hilarious.

What drew you to Folk Horror?
The Folk and the Horror.

What does Folk Horror mean to you? How would you describe it to someone?
A potent mix of tradition, ritual, closed communities, and an unholy relationship with the land.

What is the most Folk Horror thing you’ve seen/encountered in your community?
It may be inner London, but Deptford likes to do its bit. On May 1st some of the locals dress up in leaves and antlers and process around the ancient boundaries beating drums. They finish the parade at St Nicolas Church, which has two enormous skulls decorating its gateposts. I watch from my window and do not venture out.

What writing projects do you have next?
More scary stories, perhaps a novel. A short novel.

THE FIENDS IN THE FURROWS

The Fiends in the Furrows: An Anthology of Folk Horror is a collection of nine short stories that hew both to the earthy traditions and blaze new trails in Folk Horror.

Fans of Folk Horror, as well as those unfamiliar with it, will find horrors galore in these stories. Themes of rural isolation and insularity, paranoia, mindless and monstrous ritual, as well as arcane ceremonies clashing against modern preoccupations run through these stories.

Nosetouch Press is proud to bring The Fiends in the Furrows: An Anthology of Folk Horror to horror enthusiasts everywhere.
