This week, as the cold grips the northern hemisphere, Stephen Hernandez is Driving Home for Christmas with fell intent. Meanwhile, ghastly surprises are in store in deepest suburbia, where nevertheless two hearts beat as one in Gary Murphy’s new story. Mathias Jansson introduces us to a disturbing trio of doctors, and I'm interviewing Rob Bliss about his equally disturbing newly published novel (previously serialised within these ‘ere virtual pages!), Cut.
In the penultimate installment of long-running epic The Days of Mr Thomas, the home secretary is discussing the need for the man himself. There's a special surprise waiting in The Vixen's Den, while the scientists are experimenting with ultrasonics in order to end this Terror from the Edge of Space. MR James is top of the class with A School Story, while in The Coming Race we learn the origins of the subterranean folk. Meanwhile Arthur Gordon Pym takes on the pirates.
Christmas Ghost Stories: A Schlock! Anthology.
Since the days of Dickens, if not earlier, Christmas has been a time for joy, for gift-giving—but most of all, for ghosts and supernatural terrors.
Stories in the grand old tradition of such masters as Dickens himself and the peerless MR James will be accepted for this anthology, as long as they’re sufficiently terrifying, while equally chilling supernatural stories of contemporary times are also appropriate.
Make them scary, make them terrifying, make them spine-chilling… Christmas is a time for terror!
