Alex Davis – Worms: Introduction

K. T. Davies – Zombie Worms Ate My Hamster
Adam Millard – Tommy Squirm
Sandra Unerman – The Twitching Tail
Anna Taborska – Cyril’s Mission
Amelia Mangan – The Figurehead
Stephen Palmer – Nobody Likes Worms
Simon Dessloch – The Worm Boy
James Everington – The Place Where It Always Rains

Blurb:
If ever an anthology did exactly what it said on the tin, this one would be precisely it. And why not? Worms have been fine horror fodder for a number of years now, and it was something that Editor Alex Davis always wanted to explore. Insects have always been a sort of fear for him. Worms was the one that felt that he could just about manage – although he has to admit that there were still plenty of uncomfortable moments in reading through these tales. So step on in and read this glorious, gruesome, squirmy anthology about – Worms.

Yorkshire – a rolling landscape of verdant dales and quaint country towns. But where industrial fires left hideous scars, forlorn ruins echo the shrieks of forgotten wars, and depraved killers evoke nightmare tales of ogres, trolls and wild moorland boggarts…

The stalking devil of Boroughbridge
The murder machine at Halifax
The hooded horror of Pontefract
The bloody meadow at Towton
The black tunnel of Renfield
The evil trickster of Spaldington
The shadow forms at Silverwood

And many more chilling tales by Alison Littlewood, Mark Morris, Stephen Laws, Simon Clark, Mark Chadbourn, and other award-winning masters and mistresses of the macabre.
