Product description

Product Description

We are the shiver on your uneasy flesh, the creep of the unknown on your skin.

Darkly delicious imaginings for the adult connoisseur of bedtime stories.

Tread carefully, for the dark things best left behind in the forest may seep under your door and sup with you.
The lover at your window or in your bed may have the scent of your death already on their breath.

The boundaries between the everyday and the unearthly are snakeskin-thin.
The trees have eyes and the night has talons.
Demons are drawn by the perfume of human vice and wickedness.

Whispered to you from the edges, from the haunted mouths of those who see more than you or I, here are twelve tales of lust and rivalry, of envy and deceit, and of secrets gouged from the darkest depths of the human heart.

Is the shadow on the wall, really yours, after all?

Buy 'Cautionary Tales' and delve the shadow world of dark superstitions and folklore

‘Funny, brutal, and irreverent’ –

Short stories inspired by the customs and ancient tales of Russia and Eastern Europe.
