The East Anglia Fens are place of mystery and imagination. The spectral landscape broods under a wide sky. Lonely roads lead to ruined abbeys. Narrow tracks meander off into the marshes. The fog draws suddenly in and there is the always the ever-present, deep, dark water.

Drawing influence from the works of MR James and HP Lovecraft as well as local myth and folklore, author Robert Poyton has written thirteen tales set in and around the Fens. From the truth of what actually happened to King John in The Wash, to the modern day Dunwich Nightmare, these stories will chill you to the bone.

"FT readers will enjoy the allusions in these genuinely creepy and well-written stories of archaic horrors in a modern, if damp, landscape." - Fortean Times Magazine
