“This atmospheric collection of wondrously weird tales is all based around similar themes of superstition, folklore and the fear of change. Set against eery English backdrops these nine short stories complement each other perfectly.
The first tale, Sire of the Hatchet by Coy Hall is the unsettling story of an executioner and his assistant who get more than they bargained for when they’re sent to kill a suspected witch.
The Fruit by Lindsay King-Miller is about an evil orchard tended to by the fearful inhabitants of a village. We guarantee you’ll never look at an apple the same way again. And The Way of the Mother by Stephanie Ellis is classic folk horror at its very oddest with its toe-curling rituals and powerful god-monster.”
