    Product Description

    Product Description

    A Norman family are terrorised in their own castle by an ancient, malevolent beast … a horror from the depths of the ocean arrives in Regency England … a Roman officer enlists a Christian woman to exorcise the demonic spirit that haunts his country villa.

    Three more novellas of historical horror and suspense by the two-times winner of the British Fantasy Award and winner of the International Horror Guild Award.


    Twilight In The Orm-Garth

    When Norman baron Dagobert of Caux assembles his family to celebrate his fiftieth birthday, he faces the double-threat of a Saxon uprising and a Viking incursion. But a far greater menace is posed by the Korred, a blood-soaked monster from the mists of Britain’s pagan past.


    The Amphibians

    A gunsmith’s apprentice leads a busy but mundane existence, until he joins forces with a roguish seaman who is being hunted by a murderous foe from the dark, weed-choked waters of the Sargasso Sea, the most exotic and deadliest ocean in the world.


    For We Are Many

    When a Roman officer learns that the new Christian god has power over disembodied spirits, he rescues Flavia, a condemned Christ follower, from the dismemberment block – but only on the condition that she will help him exorcise the violent and mysterious entity that haunts his country manse.

    More About the Author

    Paul's agent- Julian Friedmann at http://www.blakefriedmann.co.uk/

    Paul Finch studied History at Goldsmiths, London, before becoming a cop in the north west of England. He then let his passion for writing allow him to follow a career in journalism. Now a full time writer, he first cut his literary teeth penning episodes of the British TV crime drama, THE BILL, and has written extensively in the field of children's animation. However, he is probably best known for his work in thrillers and horrors.

    His crime debut novel, STALKERS, was a no 1 ebook best seller in 2013 and introduced DS Mark 'Heck' Heckenburg. This was followed last July 2013 by the sequel, SACRIFICE, and May 2014 by the third in the series, THE KILLING CLUB. The fourth, DEAD MAN WALKING, will follow in November 2014, with the fifth, HUNTED, in February 2015. The Heck series is also to be published in Germany, Poland, Turkey, Hungary, and Japan.

    In addition to his Heck novels, Paul has had twelve books and nearly 300 stories and novellas published on both sides of the Atlantic. His first collection, AFTER SHOCKS (Ash-Tree Press), won the British Fantasy Award in 2002, while he won the award again in 2007 for his novella, KID. Later in 2007, he won the International Horror Guild Award for his mid-length story, THE OLD NORTH ROAD. His short novel, CAPE WRATH (Telos), was short-listed for the Bram Stoker Award in 2002, and several other collections of his stories and novellas have been published since, all of them well received by fans and readers. His horror novel, STRONGHOLD, was published by Abaddon Books in 2010, and the same year Pendragon Press published his highly rated festive terror tale, SPARROWHAWK. Paul has also written three DR WHO audio dramas for Big Finish - LEVIATHAN, SENTINELS OF THE NEW DAWN and HEXAGORA, and THRESHOLD, the pilot episode for the DR WHO spin-off series, COUNTER MEASURES. Paul's DR WHO novel, HUNTER'S MOON was published by BBC Books in 2011.

    Paul is no stranger to film either, having written scripts for several horror movies. Two of these, SPIRIT TRAP and THE DEVIL'S ROCK, were released in 2005 and 2011 respectively, while his short story THE BELFRIES, is currently being adapted in Hollywood, and his movie script WAR WOLF is under development by Amber Entertainment.

    Wearing an editor's hat, Paul is also responsible for the TERROR TALES series from Gray Friar Press, a collection of ghost and horror anthologies exploring the folklore, history and geography of the various regions of Britain.

    Paul Finch lives in Lancashire, UK, with his wife Cathy and his children, Eleanor and Harry.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Historical Fun 9 Jan. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Another three horror novellas set throughout history. More than half of the book is taken up with the first of these, a tale of a Norman family staring down the consequences of their aggressive pacification of Britain. Detailed and compelling, this story actually suffers for the inclusion of a supernatural 'horror' - as a tale of a family at war, it's electrifying, and the grim tone is horrific enough to suit the genre without any need for the presence of an ancient killing machine. The second tale, Amphibians, is a runaround in which creatures from the deep stalk a mad sailor who has absconded with something they consider theirs. It's good fun, but lightweight. Only the final tale, effectively a Roman retelling of an Exorcist style haunting, fully lives up to the promise of the tales in the previous volume, and in doing so gave me chills. Finch does this horror historical subgenre better than anybody else I've read, and the collection is both fun and readable, but it's not his very best.

    Paul Finch is an excellent writer capturing both mood and atmosphere. His subject matter is handled like a combo of L'Amour and Howard and this collection of stories is just as good as the first. Well worth the read!
    5.0 out of 5 stars Another great collection of Paul Finch historical horror stories 9 Oct. 2012
    By Terence Tan Co - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Well another well written bunch of Paul Finch horror stories. I liked the last two most namely Amphibians and For we are many...Amphibians has that sargasso sea William Hope Hodgson quality to it mixed with some great action. Very atmospheric. As for We are many...well its christian demons in Pagan Rome and the vagaries of faith and martyrdom.
