Inspired by our native landscapes, saturated by the shadows beneath trees and behind doors, listening to the run of water and half-heard voices, Tom Cox’s first collection of short stories is a series of evocative and unsettling trips into worlds previously visited by the likes of M. R. James and E. F. Benson.
Railway tunnels, the lanes and hills of the Peak District, family homes, old stones, shreds fluttering on barbed wire, night drawing in, something that might be an animal shifting on the other side of a hedge: Tom has drawn on his life-long love of weird fiction, folklore and nature’s unregarded corners to write a collection of stories that will delight fans old and new, and leave them very uneasy about turning the reading lamp off.
Help the Witch is published by Unbound in October 2018.
Tom Cox is the author of ten books, including the Sunday Times top ten bestseller The Good, The Bad and The Furry and the Wainwright Prize-longlisted 21st-Century Yokel, which the Guardian described as ‘a rich, strange, oddly glorious brew’. Tom lives in Devon, where he writes about nature, folklore and the countryside and hosts a monthly radio show on the experimental rural radio station Soundart.
