Read 2020 - 23 - Terror Tales of Northwest England

I have a story in this book.

I've read this book.

I'm all about this book.

The anthology is a series of short stories by various authors interspersed with folklore, written by Paul Finch. Paul also edited the anthology and it is published by Telos. My story, The Mute Swan, is set in Wallasey, and is about a girl who can't find her voice and a deranged and narcissistic ballet teacher.

I'm going to cheat and highlight my favourite story in the anthology - it's by Simon Bestwick, who just happens to be my husband, and yes, I may be a little biased.

And sometimes - sometimes it's what's down there that finds a way out. Below is set in lost streets and tunnels below Manchester, and it's absolutely fantastic. It's an atmospheric, terrifying, character-driven piece.

You can pick it up at Amazon.
