Help the Witch Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

'These stories are a delight' Guardian'Often unnerving, frequently funny and always original, the tangled roots of these haunted stories reach into deep, dark places to unearth an alternative England' Benjamin Myers, author of The Offing'Everyone should read Help the Witch - funny, odd, moving, haunting . . . Brings so much emotion and humour to horror' Isy SuttieAs night draws through country lanes, and darkness sweeps across hills and darkness sweeps across hills and hedgerows, shadows appear where figures are not; things do not remain in their places; a new home is punctured by abandoned objects; a watering hole conceals depths greater than its swimmers can fathom. Riddled with talismans and portents, saturated by shadows beneath trees and whispers behind doors, these ten stories broaden the scope of folk tales as we know them.

Inspired by our native landscapes and traversing boundaries of the past and future, this collection is Tom Cox's first foray into fiction.

Funny, strange and poignant, it elicits the unexpected and unseen to raise our hackles and set imaginations whirring.
