weird fiction

Horror story anthology

Penkhull Press writer Jan Edwards has teamed up with Peter Coleborn to edit The Alchemy Press Book of Horrors.

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…? 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?

The Alchemy Press Book of Horrors is officially published on 1st November 2018.
