For those who are following Simon Bestwick’s monthly serial Black Mountain, we’d like to inform you that episode 4, The Beast of Maes Carnedd, is available to buy from Amazon for the Kindle right now.
‘Maes Carnedd lies in ruins now. It’s more than a hundred years since the Welsh mining village, in the shadow of Mynydd Du, was abandoned by its inhabitants.
In the summer of 1903, terror came to Maes Carnedd, and left a trail of corpses in its wake.
Something that killed with the strength and savagery of an animal, but the cruelty and sadism of a man. Something that brought death to its victims in the heart of the woods, in the tunnels of the mines, or behind the locked doors and windows of their own homes.
Only one man knows the truth of the events that doomed Maes Carnedd.
And now it’s time to tell.’
