Synopsis: This anthology will hopefully remind you of a time when horror books didn’t try to be overly literary or snobbish or superior in tone. The tales inside will take you back to when your stomach took the occasional lurch. Stories that might be found by a teenager fifty years down the line when he or she discovers the book in a relative’s bookcase, or whatever passes for a second hand bookshop in the future, and give them the fire in their belly to try their hand at writing a horror story. This is a horror anthology in the tradition of the anthologies we all grew up with.
