Here it is – the cover to December’s chapbook, The Way of the Leaves by David Tallerman, the winner of the Spectral Press/This is Horror short story competition held earlier this year. The photo was taken by a very good friend of ours, Lyn Jenner, and once again the talents of the magnificent Neil Williams have made it into something spectacularly spooky. It’s a particularly apposite image, given the theme of the story, hints of which you’ll be able to glean from the back cover blurb quoted below:
“The barrow. The hill upon the hill. A place that was old when the Normans came to England. A place of mystery and secrets and uneasy truce.
Now, two children find themselves drawn to the ancient tor, caught in events beyond their understanding. And what they find in the darkness beneath will shatter the course of their lives forever.”
This is going off to print today so should be available early next week. There are a few individual issues left for sale, but not many – so, if you’re interested in acquiring a copy please contact us on spectralpress[AT]gmail[DOT]com.
More soon – onwards and upwards!
