    • 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.


    • 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.
