Blood Wood & Other Stories by Christopher Harman - hardcvr
Hardcover. Limited/numbered edition of 275. Publisher now sold out!
Presenting an invitation to terror … here the reader will discover a dozen tales of Jamesian chills, creeping urban dread and rural folk horror … there is darkness even in the common-place. And for Mr Harman’s characters there appears to be no escape from the lurking horrors …
Eleven of these stories were originally published (in magazines and anthologies) over a period of twenty years between 1994 and 2014 and are collected together here for the first time. The title novella “Blood Wood” was written especially and is wholly original to this volume.
Christopher Harman is a former librarian and lives in Preston, Lancashire. His stories have appeared in magazines and anthologies over almost thirty years and this (sort of/mostly) retrospective and bumper collection of his work is really long overdue.
Stories: “The Children”, “Passengers”, “A Better Place”, “In the Fields”, “Dinckley Green”, “Sleepers”, “By Leaf and Thorn”, “The Last to be Found”, “Jackdaw Jack”, “Dark Tracks”, “Hill Shadows” and “Blood Wood”
