Unbecoming Me, & Other Interruptions by Christopher Stanley

  A chilling new short story collection from the author of  The Forest is Hungry   and  The Lamppost Huggers and Other Wretched Tales . In 'Devil's Reach', a frantic father boards a ferry, hoping to save his daughter and escape his wife. But nothing is as it seems as the ferry sails into darkness, and there are forces at work he won’t begin to understand until it’s too late. In 'Hell's Teeth', a young girl enlists the help of supernatural forces to exact revenge on the school bully, only to find she can’t live with guilt. And in the final story, 'Unbecoming Me', a young man’s desperate search for love takes an unexpected turn after he’s rejected by the woman of his dreams. Dark, sinister and unforgiving –  Unbecoming Me & Other Interruptions  will make you want to sleep with the lights on. Demain Publishing is back and I couldn't be happier! I've just finished reading Curfew by Kev Harrison and now Unbecoming Me, & Other Interruptions b

Curfew by Kev Harrison

  When Jamie takes his girlfriend for a summer anniversary getaway by the sea, he thinks only the great British weather can ruin his plans. But he hasn’t accounted for Mrs Heinz, the bizarre proprietor of The Sailor’s Rest, and her obsessive fixation on midnight and curfew... I'm so excited that Demain Publishing is back with another onslaught of horror! Seriously this series is really addictive!  Over the years I've read a lot of Kev Harrison's work. They're all great fun and of course very dark. I loved his previous tale in the series - Cinders of a Bind Man Who Could See. This was an excellent serving of folk horror set in a small community in Northern England. The last tale I read by Kev was his folk horror novella,  The Balance , which I absolutely loved. It's a great reinterpretation of the legendary Baba Yaga folk tale with a modern twist. It's gone on to receive great praise and now's he's back with Curfew. Curfew is about a fun romantic weekend
