This book combines with a DVD of the same name to bring you stories and interviews with the current UK Masters of Terror!
Martin Roberts and his Purple Rage Film company have travelled the UK to track down and interview the most eminent authors and publishers that form the heart and soul of the small press and professional horror World.
Here, in this strictly limited edition, you have the chance to be party to the thoughts and views of authors you will at last be able to put a face to, then go on and read their offerings in the shape of specially selected stories.
Last but by no means least, this rare package is completed by a CD featuring eight songs from one of the UK’s most exciting and prolific bands, Stormclouds. ‘Dark Dreams’ gives us a sampler of some of their music from a variety of albums.
