These short stories are sure to set minds whirring and hearts thumping.

Environmental anxieties rear their heads as monsters impinge on the delicate ecosystem of Britain, and unusual events suggest there’s much more to our world than we thought.

Peep into the human soul when a young grieving Native American man goes on a pilgrimage. Bear witness to an old lady’s memories in a park that isn’t quite what it seems. And who knew a game of cricket and a cucumber sandwich could be so sinister?

Marvel at the mystery of what lies beneath: the garden of a sleepy cottage where a spectacular discovery is waiting; the find that could revive a teenager’s beloved family and country; the strange object inherited from a hermit uncle.

Shudder at the supernatural, such as when a dark secret behind a young boy’s imaginary friend is revealed, or when a trip to the beach as an eerie twist in the tale – or when a mirror becomes the window into a house’s murderous memories.

And the faint-hearted will want to stop before the final tale of a nightmarish invasion. Don’t say you weren’t warned.
