Story Notes

Take a Diploma in Fear….

Four secretaries working a late shift in a deserted office block….
A young man who sees the ghost of his dead father in wet glass….
The British underworld boss who will do anything to restore his tortured wife’s good looks…
The old cottage in the Wye Valley whose walls are soaked with blood…
An art gallery where patrons become part of the paintings….
A shop where you can buy anything your heart desires, but at a terrible price….

When music graduate Paul Dearden accepts an invitation to dinner at his old university the last thing he expects is an evening of the macabre. Over the finest food and drink he learns that the institution has a history steeped in blood. Paul cannot believe that the tales he is told by his dining companions are true, even though none of them are as cruel or as terrifying as the story he needs to tell.

In the tradition of classic British anthology horror films like The House that Dripped Blood, AsylumFrom Beyond the Grave, John Llewellyn Probert’s The Faculty of Terror offers six tales of terror linked by a framework story, the climax of which will earn all who survive it a first class degree in spine tingling horror! and

“It’s time for terror”!

The Faculty Of Terror attracted keen attention on Vault Mk I, but me being such a slowcoach, I only just snapped it up along with The Catacombs Of Fear as part of the Right Hon. John Probert funpack from Gray Friars Press. These are the first Gray Friars books i’ve seen and I have to say, they’re a very attractive proposition. The covers, by Zach McCain and Gary Fry respectively, strike exactly the right note – put me in mind of the montage on the back of Jack Oleck’s Tales From The Crypt novelisation.

John Llewellyn Probert – The Catacombs of Fear

Something nasty is lurking below the offices of Gray Friar Press …..

Strolling Shadowy Corridors: A Guided Tour of The Catacombs of Fear


House of God or House of Horrors?

The dinner party gate-crashed by the undead…

The beautiful girl whose looks are maintained by acts of violence…

The crippled ballerina desperate for new legs…

The television producer who discovers that murder improves his ratings…

The hideous deaths in an old country house that lead to something far worse…

The Reverend Patrick Clements arrives at Chilminster Cathedral to take up his new post, only to find his introductory tour taking rather longer than anticipated. As the sun sets and the evening draws on Patrick meets staff and parishioners, and learns far more of the macabre history of the community he is destined to become a part of than any mortal man should hear. But these stories are only the beginning of what has been planned for him.

John Llewellyn Probert’s follow up to his award-winning The Faculty of Terror provides five macabre tales bound together by a framework story, the climax of which will take its readers into the very depths of hell.

And back again.
