The Blackmoor Tales

In Blackmoor, time runs differently. Each period spirals and intertwines with the next. Hideous beings from times forgotten and places unnamed slip across dimensions to hunt among the living, stealing innocence and culling blood for insatiable appetites. Prayers and candles, fortitude and cunning, heavy latched doors and shuttered panels offer no protection.

Eleven dark tales of fantasy and horror draw the town of Blackmoor before the reader’s eyes. These shivery tales range from short fiction to novella-length, with transitions in dark poetic verse between the stories.

The characters range from Lovecraftian creatures that stalk man in remote swamps, to flesh-eating monsters roaming the countryside. Blood-culling grotesques, demons disguised in childhood rhymes, psychological and physical vampires and zombies abound. Souls are lured and corralled at Blackmoor’s Inn for malevolent entertainment, and interplanetary intrusions torment and harvest mortals. The physical settings include remote swamps, burial grounds, fairytale landscapes, a clearing ringed by blood-culling pines, caves that touch the ocean, a willow-strewn river, and an Inn laced with ghastly evil. Remember the old Celtic warning: From goulies and ghosties and long-leggedy beasties, and things that go bump in the night, Good Lord, deliver us!
