Trick and Treat!


At IndieBooks we have something for both the young and old(er) this Halloween…

Shadows on the Fens is a limited edition anthology of new and classic ghostly tales set in East Anglia, that celebrates the work of M.R James, his contemporaries, and present day writers who are continuing in the tradition of such masters of supernatural fiction. It is edited by playwright Adrian Drew, the author of ‘The Laws of Shadows’ – the critically acclaimed play about M.R. James that recently showcased to great success in London.

A Young Person’s Guide to the Gothic is the perfect book for everyone who loves modern Gothic and wants to know where the vampires, ghouls, haunted houses and zombies all began. It takes each element of the Gothic, from the settings of castles and forests to the werewolves and ghosts who infest them, and uses extracts from the original classics as illustrations – and to encourage readers to go on and explore these wonderful works.It is an ideal primer for those studying the Gothic in Key Stages 3 or 4 or A-level: but it is also to be read for the sheer enjoyment. Editor Richard Bayne has included a dozen complete Gothic stories – some familiar, some found mouldering in the crypts – so forming an anthology of some of the best chilling tales of all time. To complete the fun, the Guide is illustrated by award-winning graphic novelist Richard Sala.
