Tales of the Damned is a brand new anthology of Fortean-themed horror fiction, edited by the CFZ’s zoological director, Richard Freeman. At 354 pages it contains 25 stories by 21 different authors, including such well-known Fortean names as Neil Arnold, Andy Roberts, Lars Thomas and Dr Karl Shuker. As Richard put it, “Who better to pen a collection of weird tales than those who hunt monsters, search for ghosts and study anomalous phenomena? For the first time ever here is an anthology of bizarre horror written by those who actively seek the strange, occult and disturbing. Herein lie what Charles Fort, the first eclectic paranormal researcher, would truly describe as a parade of the damned.”
Tales of the Damned has just been published in trade paperback format, with a Kindle version scheduled for next month. To get your copy, click on the appropriate link below (or search your local Amazon store if you are outside the UK or US):
