“Come inside, my bonny witch-finder. Here is shelter for thee…”A tale of callous murder and deranged revenge rings out from fifteenth-century Italy. A witch-finder’s great triumph is also the herald of his own doom in Civil War Britain. A prisoner’s fate at the hands of the Inquisition in sixteenth-century Mexico leads to an encounter with the bestial and bizarre beneath the waves.

Summoning eleven stories chosen for their uncanny portrayals of weird history, this collection presents a dark timeline of grim visions harking from plague-racked England to revolutionary France and culminating in the last gasps of the nineteenth century. Including stories by the greatest writers of history-turned-horrifying such as Marjorie Bowen, Frederick Cowles, Vernon Lee and the lost genius Vincent O’Sullivan, this volume is capped by two of Aaron Worth’s own tales of Victorian macabre alongside a chiller evoking M. R. James by the adapter of his stories for radio, Sheila Hodgson.
