Nosetouch Press is proud to bring The Fiends in the Furrows: An Anthology of Folk Horror to horror enthusiasts everywhere.
Or the freak show that came through all the way back in 1934?
Want to know why we never cross that bridge at night?
Do you know why we don’t talk about that famous artist or his crazy daughter?
What about the legendary serpent with an appetite for human flesh?
Or the portal in the forest that leads to another world?
Have you heard why every single house on Lincoln Way has been vacant for fifty years?
What about the man-eating beast that prowls the North American wilderness?
Or about the spider-limbed monstrosity that sings while it hunts you down?
An unspeakable entity known only as the Widow…
A water demon with a beautiful face and an insatiable appetite…
A murderous nurse with powers that transcend death…
An unassuming shopkeeper with a gruesome secret…
An ancient horror that holds a small town in thrall…
A forgotten phantom with a thousand faces…

In the Weald,
the time has come for the Five Turns of the Wheel.

Lord of Umbra,
have arrived to oversee the sacred rituals…
rituals brimming with
sacrifice and dripping with blood.
Megan Wheelborn, daughter of Tommy,
hatches a desperate plan to free the people of the Weald
from the bloody and cruel grip of Umbra,
and put an end to its murderous rituals. But success
will require sacrifice and blood as well.

The penultimate premise?
What if the biblical progenitors of humanity were bent on its eventual destruction?
The answer is here between these covers, in the form of a heavy-metal armageddon meltdown fueled by rage, passion, firepower, and hellfire. This is epic poetry like you’ve never read before—irreverent, gruesome, horrifying, heartrending. It will make you think, and it will clarify the meaning of the phrase:
Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned
Only these aren't the fairytales you grew up with.

Reborn is the story of Cernunnos, the Father of all, who has risen. Born of blood offerings, he travels to the Layerings—one of those places, like Umbra, which sit just beyond the human veil.
Reborn is the story of Tommy, Betty and Fiddler, the infamous troupe whose bloody rituals were halted by Megan, Tommy’s Daughter. Rendered weak by Megan’s refusal to allow them to hunt in the human world of the Weald, they seek their rebirth and forgiveness from the Mother and Cernunnos.
Reborn is the story of Megan, who follows Cernunnos and Hweol’s sons on a pilgrimage of hope—one that would see her husband restored to her and the dark presence of Hweol removed.
Ultimately, though, Reborn is the story of Betty, the most monstrous of the three brothers. He is Nature, red in tooth and claw. He is what the Mother made him. And who are we to judge?
With Reborn, Ellis delivers another powerful tale of folk horror that will captivate the reader from the first page until its final bloody climax.
