This edition limited to 250 numbered copies. ILL MET BY DARKNESS comprises four original chilling tales (all novelettes/novellas) written especially for this volume. “Snicker-Snack” is a darkly disturbing study of art, monsters and guilt... beware the jabberwock, ‘the claws that catch’. “Down to a Sunless Sea” features a weird Cretan objet d’art, an archaeological find, a legendary queen and a fiend of the Ancient World.
“The Hell Wain” takes us to a sleepy Lancashire village on Guy Fawkes Night, and introduces the horrific tradition of ‘The Bonfire Boys’. “Spirit of the Season” explores the idea of old Christmas, strange ritual, ancient powers and age-old winter terrors. #66955
