Full Colour Wrap Dust-Jacket Art by Paul Lowe
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.
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.
