If you’re looking for a short bedtime scare this Halloween, here’s my pick of some of the best new indie talent around!
A Monstrous Place by Matthew Stott
Gaiman fans will love this novella. A dark, fantastical journey into a truly monstrous place.
Peter Cawdron’s take on the Dracula legend is creepy and innovative and a welcome boost to the genre.
Christopher Boore’s short is a jarring tale of the early days of an apocalypse where zombies have been weaponised. Fast and deadly, with a killer ending.
Daniel Arthur Smith has a new series of scary shorts starting with this terrible tale of tentacles. Read at your peril.
Will Swardstrom’s football zombie short is a fitting end to this scary weekend. Tense and scary. And sporty.
Bob Williams’ Magenta is a quick and creepy story with a twist in the tale.
