Limited Edition SOLD OUT

Full Colour Dust-Jacket Art by Paul Lowe.
Edited & Introduced by Rosemary Pardoe

Sarob Press is delighted to present a superb collection of Jamesian Folk Horror tales. Ten have been selected from the pages of editor Rosemary Pardoe’s journals Ghosts & Scholars andThe Ghosts & Scholars MR James Newsletter  ~ and seven are newly written especially for this volume. The previously published stories date from as early as 1980 and as recent as 2015. And here you’ll find Folk Horror in a variety of expected and unexpected settings, from ancient burial mounds in Wiltshire and East Anglia to a park in Liverpool, by way of ruins in Ireland, and the countryside/villages of the Lake District, Dorset, Derbyshire and an unspecified southern county. In the new stories the settings range further afield and include Scotland and Greece. In one case, while the setting is Scotland, the Folk Horror comes terrifyingly from pre-war Germany.
