Damnable Tales: A Folk Horror Anthology (Hardcover)

Selected by Richard Wells

This richly illustrated anthology gathers together classic short stories from masters of supernatural fiction including M. R. James, Sheridan Le Fanu and Arthur Machen, alongside lesser-known voices in the field including Eleanor Scott and Margery Lawrence, and popular writers less bound to the horror genre, such as Thomas Hardy and E. F. Benson.

These are damnable tales, selected and beautifully illustrated by Richard Wells. They stalk the moors at night, the deep forests, cornered fields and dusky churchyards, the narrow lanes and old ways of these ancient places, drawing upon the haunted landscapes of folk-horror.

These twenty-two stories take the reader beyond the safety and familiarity of the town into the isolated and untamed wilderness. Unholy rites, witches’ curses, sinister village traditions and ancient horrors that lurk within the landscape all combine to remind us that the shiny modern, urban world might not have all the answers…

A Magnificently Illustrated, Visually Commanding Tome


Each tale is accompanied and perfectly complimented by a lino-block illustration by Richard Wells - an illustrator and graphic designer known for his dark folkloric style and whose work for television has featured in SherlockDoctor Who and the the recent BBC adaptation of Dracula

An essential addition to the library of the eerie and the wyrd.
