SWEET DREAMS AREN’T MADE OF THESE. Something more than ghosts pursue a family through a desert war zone. A slaughterman says goodbye to his job, but a place of death opens many doorways to dark places. From a father with a dark past, a young woman’s inheritance gives her far more than she thinks. And a mother’s coffee shop daydream could unleash her worst nightmare. These are just some of the dark imaginings that will infect your dreams and rip you from sleep with a cold sweat because you’ve got NIGHT TERRORS.
If dreams come true, then so do nightmares. Especially when demons hide – and devour – in plain sight, or the wrong psychopath is recruited for their dream job. When a telephone rings for a forgotten boy in an old red telephone box, or when the sinister origin of a curse is locked within a children’s nursery rhyme, then the horror will follow you darkly into your dreams. And it will still be there when you wake.
He is deathly pale. His fingernails are cut to sharp points. His teeth protrude menacingly from his mouth in clouds of rancid breath… Yet even Count Dracula’s unnerving appearance and the frightened reaction of the local peasants fail to warn Jonathan Harker, a young man from England, about his host. Little does Jonathan know that this is a land where babies are snatched for their blood and wolves howl menacingly from the forest, where reality is far more frightening than superstition. What’s more, it’s going to be up to him to stop the world’s most bloodthirsty predator…
One of the best known horror stories ever.
Victor Frankenstein, a Swiss scientist, has a great ambition: to create intelligent life. But when his creature first stirs, he realizes he has made a monster. A monster which, abandoned by his master and shunned by everyone who sees it, follows Dr Frankenstein with murder and horrors to the very ends of the earth.
In a quest to discover his inner self, celebrated physician Dr Henry Jekyll, uncovers a monster. At first he attempts to conceal this but gradually Hyde becomes stronger and stronger, dominating Jekyll and ultimately destroying them both. First published to immediate acclaim in 1886, this mesmerising thriller is a terrifying study of the lightness and darkness living inside every human soul.
" Dan Soule gathers an impressively varied array of concepts and develops them in expert fashion, weaving the threads of character, suspense, misdirection and accumulating dread into striking tapestries of terror. Read In Tooth and Claw, ravening for more! "
" Neolithica is a masterful meditation on horror and grief – A cult horror smash, which conjures up the very best from Hutson and Herbert – a terrifying must read for all horror fans!"
" Witchopper is a unique book: part Pagan horror, part ghost-story, and also a literary meditation on the sins of fatherhood."
