Horror at Halloween

Check out our titles which are perfect for some Halloween reading!
A major anthology of new and classic supernatural tales set in mysterious East Anglia.
Lonely dunes and marshes; ruined mills and lighthouses; unmarked tracks that lead you into the unknown………
No wonder so many of the masters of the English ghost story, from M.R. James to E.F. Benson, chose to set their tales in East Anglia. Now, for the first time, the writer Wayne Drew has brought together the very best stories from the ghost-ridden counties of Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire in one volume. Some may be old friends; others have been out of print and lost for years. 

Reader Review: “Wayne Drew has brought together a wonderfully spooky and unnerving collection of 21 nail-biting ghost stories, penned by some very distinguished authors, including such gems as 'The Headless Hound' and 'The Guide' – as well as three classic tales by the renowned master of the macabre himself: M. R. James ('A Warning to the Curious', 'Oh Whistle and I'll Come To You', and 'The Fenstanton Witch').
'Shadows on the Fens' is a must buy for anyone interested in truly terrifying tales of the supernatural.  Highly recommended.”

Ideal for those studying the Gothic (Key Stages 3, 4, or A-level) but it is also to be read for the sheer enjoyment.  Enter if you dare...
This is the book for everyone who loves modern Gothic and wants to know where the vampires, ghouls, haunted houses and zombies all began. It takes each element of the Gothic, from the settings of castles and forests to the werewolves and ghosts who infest them, and uses extracts from the original classics as illustrations and to encourage readers to go on and explore these wonderful works.

Reader Review: "What a wonderful read! This book taught me so much, and has left me with a good understanding of what 'Gothic' actually means. The addition of some relevant classic short stories push home the information Richard Bayne supplies in such an easy to understand way.
A very enjoyable read. Well done Mr. Bayne."
