Horrible Folk is a monologue for twenty-eight voices concerning devils, the landscape, old stones, older gods, ordinary murder and many of the other crimes of man. Built out of the faces in the backgrounds of British horror films, and sites sacred and profane from the British landscape, it’s a singular comic experience that demands to be read and savoured. What shadow stretches out behind the devil? Who was the stranger in the lane? Horrible Folk points the way. A preview of the first four pages can be found on Broken Frontier.
“This is folklore draped across a pop cultural backdrop and pulled together to create something even stranger and darker. ” – Andy Oliver, Broken Frontier.
“…he captures the feverish, hallucinatory feel of folk horror – the strangeness that hums in even the most familiar of landscapes.” – Tom Murphy, Full-Page Bleed.
