Fourbodings: A Quartet of Uneasy Tales from Four Masters of the Macabre
edited by Peter Crowther
About the Book:
A collection of four brand new novellas of terror by British superstars Simon Clark, Tim Lebbon, Terry Lamsley, and Mark Morris — sure to be one of the finest and scariest books of the entire year!
"Langthwaite Road" by Simon Clark
A blacktop notorious for fatalities, runs out to Langthwaite, an ancient market town long ago inundated by ocean and now lying on the seabed. Leo Carter presides over the road and during the hours of darkness he watches things infinitely stranger than vehicles pass along its blood-soaked surface.
"So Long Gerry" by Terry Lamsley
It was the flat of his dreams, or so it seemed, but when he realized the place had not been properly vacated, he began to have second thoughts. And his neighbours were giving him trouble. The rabidly dysfunctional family across the landing were bad enough but the people downstairs were worse. Much worse. Then an old friend came to look the place over, and they discovered the dead girls.
"In The Garden, Where Belladonna Grows" by Tim Lebbon
A dark nightmare of solitude and rejection, pride and guilt, love found and lost. An apocalyptic vision from one woman's damaged mind, this allegorical tale is for anyone who has ever felt alone.
"Stumps" by Mark Morris
The beautiful old house in the country offered a fresh start for Colin and Bridget Morgan, and their two children. But what are the strange wooden structures protruding from the garden soil, smooth and polished, like the tips of giant fingers? Why does Colin become so afraid of them? And what dark secret is concealed in the nearby woods? Sometimes the past has a nasty habit of catching up with you...
