Enter a world of witches and demons, creatures and beasts, but most horrifyingly of all are the people; real people with emotions, problems, and torments. Here is a new collection of diverse and intriguing supernatural stories that reveal the various arenas where good and evil do battle. Here is a new collection of stories that show the strength, depth and vision now emanating from this dual authorship.

This exciting new book contains secrets unravelled in Wales; the view from a New York analysts couch; theatrical dangers; fantasy and legend from Suffolk; witchcraft in America; haunted houses; teenage unhappiness; sexual allure; pain's sweet taste; an unwelcome holiday souvenir from Gibraltar; echoes of death in Austria; stolen moments in Devon; disaster from divorce; a haunting of memory and fantasy. The authors give us a book of supernatural horrors that linger long in the mind, that brings the shadowed terrors into the light. If you ever thought of these two writers simply in terms of traditional ghost stories – then think again – these are nightmares from a cracked modern landscape.
