Taylor’s horrific short fiction is finally compiled in one volume, making this a must have for all horror fans.
A man begins to feel ‘Out of Sorts’ while spending the night with his mistress during a full moon. With ‘Samhain’, black magic is the path for a witch wanting to get rid of her loser husband. A man’s obsession with serial killer John Reginald Christie is the catalyst for a strange and horrific trip to London in ‘Forget-Me-Not’. Another traveller has to share a room with a man who seems to know everything about a string of murders committed by husbands killing their wives in ‘Travelling Light’.
These tales, and more.
Thirteen stories, the complete short fiction of Bernard Taylor.
This is Midnight.
Why we’re excited about this book:
Bernard Taylor is one of the almost forgotten horror writers from the 1970’s and 1980’s. Author of The Godsend and Mother’s Boys (both adapted for the screen), as well as The Reaping, Taylor is still writing today, often under the pseudonym Jess Foley, as well as penning nonfiction titles under his own name. Taylor’s horrific short fiction is finally compiled in one volume, making this a must have for all horror fans. Charles L. Grant called Taylor’s Sweetheart, Sweetheart ‘The best ghost story I have ever read … a potential classic’. With tales that feature unpredictable and cruel twists, Taylor injects a healthy dose of black humor into the mix with startling results. Releasing 14 May 2019 from Valancourt Books, This is Midnight: Stories by Bernard Taylor is available for pre-order now.
