On Dark Wings: Stories
Why we’re excited about this book:
Stephen Gregory may not be the first name many think of when it comes to horror, but his novels and stories have enthralled readers across the globe for nearly four decades. Author of The Cormorant, The Woodwitch, The Blood of Angels, and most recently, Plague of Gulls, Gregory’s fiction focuses on the avian world, often featuring birds in unique and fascinating ways. For the first time, Gregory’s short fiction capturing his special brand of horror and the natural is now collected in one volume that’s a must-have for fans of dark fiction. Paul Tremblay (The Cabin at the End of the World) says: “Feverish tales of madness and nightmare with lush, precise prose . . . A one-of-a-kind horror writer to read and re-read.” On Dark Wings: Stores by Stephen Gregory, releases from Valencourt books 28 May 2019 and is available for pre-order now.
