      3.5 stars.I love the idea of this, and I love the way it s been edited, dividing the book into three distinct parts that reflect very much the most vital areas of England Country, City and Coast The seventeen stories in this collection cover a host of supernatural occurrences, embracing the diversity of the English experience Most were very well thought out, even if the execution on some felt iffier than others I ll discuss a few standouts, beginning with The Headland Of Black Rock by Alison 3.5 [...]

      This was such a varied and interesting collection I loved the way it was structured around coast, town, country, etc and this made the stories flow in a way I didn t expect I ve had a different favourite story every time I ve thought about this collection, depending on my mood, but I think overall the stories by Catriona Ward, Gareth E Rees and Robert Shearman edge it out overall A collection to be read outdoors, I think.

    6. Penny Olson on said:

      This is a good collection of creepy, atmospheric, and unsettling tales, all set in the UK Many of the authors incorporate the setting and landscape into their stories There is only one story which left me completely baffled, We Regret to Inform You.
