Damnable Tales: A Folk Horror Anthology selected and illustrated by Richard Wells with a foreward by Benjamin Myers
Paperback – Unbound – Sept 2022 – 479 pages
Damnable Tales is a richly illustrated anthology that gathers together classic short stories from masters of supernatural fiction, including M. R.
