Welcome to your nightmare!

Late-night king of the airwaves encounters a disturbed and lonely listener with deranged thoughts on her mind …

Upper crust cricketers hit a sticky wicket when caught up In the ancient rites of a remote and hostile country village …

After giving a lift to a roadside hitch-hiker, an insurance broker discovers that his mystery passenger is a portent of disaster …

A couple’s new cottage is haunted by unseen presences — which only one of the pair can hear…

An all-new selection of macabre and creepy tales, and just for you music lovers we’ve named every single story after a song. It’s a mixtape from a mausoleum, in a place where the letters ‘D. J.’ stand for ‘Deadly Jeopardy’ and where ’18 with a bullet’ sends you down into the ground rather than up to the top ten. Press play, pump up the volume, and pray that you make it as far as the B-sides …

Blurb:

The moon is full … the witching hour approaches … time to devour sacrificial offerings anew!

Drug-induced paranoia brings familiar television figures to sinister life …
Something nasty dwells beneath the floorboards of a country cottage, awaiting the new tenants…
An unexpected postal delivery leads to the uncovering of an ancient vampire‘s legacy …
Strange surgical practices are employed to remove a deadly tumour – with post-op consequences

Traumatizing new tales of terror emerge from the tomb! The weird world of British horror cinema inspires this latest collection of devilish and disturbing fiction, putting fresh spins on a cornucopia of chilling characters last glimpsed through the haze of late-night television or encountered at a menacing midnight movie marathon. Dare you venture beyond the silver screen, into a nightmarish new dimension bringing all your frightening favourites to the printed page?

Be brave, be bold … or be buried!
