Episode 7 of Simon Bestwick’s Spectral serial Black Mountain, The Master of the House, is now available on Amazon,with artwork supplied once more by Neil Williams.
1988: The farmhouse called Blas Gwynedd, standing in the very shadow of Mynydd Du, is the last human habitation within the ‘Bala Triangle’, home to a teenage boy, his downtrodden mother and his fanatical, tyrannical father.
Now, at last, the story of the farm’s desertion can be told: a tale of strangeness, insanity, violence and death. The tale of one man’s doomed attempt to prove himself the master of the house.
