The Cthulhu Child

By David Brian


The Cthulhu ChildThere are many different aspects to the world of horror, and all of them have their own particular place when it comes to providing scares for the reader. We all love monsters, regardless of whether they be vampires, werewolves, or tentacled monstrosities. Equally, literature is full of tales about masked 'slashers', those who hide in the shadows, and who are on an unstoppable quest to hunt us down. Sometimes though, we are confronted by events in the real world which can be as harrowing as any presented by creatures who stalk the night. Whilst not directly corresponding to the situations mentioned above, The Cthulhu Child provides a selection of darkly disturbing tales, each dealing with a separate element of the horror genre, and culminating in Every Single Night, a flash fiction homage to the Godfather of British horror - James Herbert R.I.P. A new collection of twisted tales, from the mind of David Brian.

Carmilla - The Wolves of Styria

By Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu and David Brian


CarmillaWhen fate draws together the lives of two young women, their mutual attraction quickly flourishes into a bond which threatens the boundaries of social etiquette in 1860ís Styria. As their relationship continues to develop further, they remain oblivious to the growing horror which surrounds them, as throughout the province other young women begin dying in mysterious circumstances. Meanwhile, others are falling victim to the apparently random attacks of a rampaging pack of wolves. When, finally the truth is revealed, the scene is set for a battle between two ancient evils.

Years before the publication of Bram Stoker's Dracula, Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu produced a haunting gothic mystery called Carmilla. David Brian has used much of the original narrative to create a very different version of Carmilla. Introducing an array of new characters, and touching on subjects which would have been considered taboo in the 1800's, Brian has succeeded in bringing a whole new level of horror, and tragedy, to the legend of Carmilla.
