Since his first appearance in 1912, William Hope Hodgson’s Carnacki has continued to thrill and amaze. Armed with his scientific apparatus of cameras and the ever-present ‘electric pentacle’, Carnacki has investigated cases of hauntings and terror both contrived and real!
Collected here are 11 new stories, and one play, featuring Carnacki and his ‘new adventures’! In these tales, he comes face to face with forces from the ‘Outer Monstrosities’ as well as numerous specters and evil curses. Danger and death are Carnacki’s companions and there are things that even the legendary SaaaMaaa Ritual cannot dispel. Thrill to these new stories of a character who has entranced readers for a century and, hopefully, a century yet to come!
This collection brings together over 50 bite-sized Easter and St Patrick’s Day themed horror stories from around the world.
Eat, drink, be merry... and die.
Stories like Marie Andrews’ “Clockwork Carousel” take us to new realms of horror. I dare anyone to look at a circus carousel the same way after reading this unnerving tale. Victorian settings are used in two very different tales. “Whitechapel Transfer” by Theresa Derwin connects the hideous crimes of Jack the Ripper with futuristic Steampunkish technology while “The Garretton Ghoul” by Christine Morgan finds another community rocked by a series of mysterious and gruesome murders.
Buck Weiss contributes a terror filled adventure in “The Black Banshee” that features two amateur sleuths of which I am sure we will read more about soon. So too is A. J. Sikes’ tale, “The Three Blind Men”, which sets the stage for more tales of technological terror. Taking us into the future is Nathan Robinson with “The Last of the Bad Few” which gives a different spin to the technological horror of Steampunk. And, as a contrast, “Nothing but a Dog: A Trio of Travellers Tale” by Travis Sivart brings us back to an Old-World European view of horror… with a dash of Steampunk added for good measure.
These stories represent an ability to look beyond a genre’s preconceptions and create new horizons. These writers are explorers in a wild, new land and, before us, they lay a vast vista of exciting, and terrifying, possibilities.
