In a harbour town long ago, a boy is entranced by his uncle's stories of adventure in lands far away. Ignoring the crazy talk of the harbour pilot's son about the uncle being the Devil, the boy boards a ship with his uncle. But the uncle soon makes enemies of the captain and crew and, in frustration at their superstition, kills an albatross that has befriended the ship. As the ship sails on, madness and death ensue, and the boy and the crew face unimaginable horrors. A superbly gripping and haunting tale for fans of all classic horror.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for Mister Creecher: A brilliant counterpoint to Frankenstein, compellingly written. Chris Priestley goes from strength to strength * Chris Riddell *
A dark, moving, creepy, funny tale about the making of a famous monster . . . only not the one you think it'll be. Splendid gothic stuff * Kim Newman, author of Nightmare Movies *
Praise for the Tales of Terror books: A wonderfully nightmarish journey of the imagination - old-fashioned storytelling at its best. * Daily Mail *
The gradual build-up of horror . . . is exquisitely done. My insides were still untangling themselves hours after I had closed the book * Sunday Telegraph *
Praise for The Dead of Winter: Deliciously creepy with lots of twists and turns to keep young readers on edge * Daily Mail *

“The Dead Men Stood Together”
