Green fields, scary horror!,
This review is from: Terror Tales of the Cotswolds (Paperback)
This is the second installment in Paul Finch's English 'terror tales' series and hopefully it won't be the last. Once again, Finch selects a bunch of chilling new stories from a host of well-known talent. It is great to see Alison Littlewood in here. She is a new novelist making massive inroads in the thriller market, but her contribution to this book is sheer supernatural horror. John Llewellyn Probert and Thana Niveau are two writers I'd never heard of before, but their stories are hair-raising. Almost fairy tale-like in their concept, but totally chilling. Ramsey Campbell is among many others who contribute, and his story is typically horrific. One again, Finch gives us lots of local folklore and mythology, which adds a great feeling of authenticity. The Cotswolds, it seems, are as scary a place as they are beautiful. Hopefully there will be many more in the series.
