When Eliot first spies the booth at the end of the pier, he wonders what it is. The canvas is faded, the striped pattern barely visible beneath years of dirt. The wooden boards are stained and bare. It’s the crude, handwritten sign that draws him closer, makes him reach out to pull the curtain aside. Enter the Shadow Booth, it says, and you will never be the same again.
The Shadow Booth, a new journal of weird and eerie fiction edited by Dan Coxon, is available now! Drawing its inspiration from the likes of Thomas Ligotti and Robert Aickman, The Shadow Booth explores that dark, murky hinterland between mainstream horror and literary fiction. Publishing as an ebook and a 208-page mass market paperback, it aims to publish familiar names alongside newcomers to the field, and to include everything from eerie literary ghost stories to finely crafted tales of Lovecraftian horror.
Volume 1 features stories by:
Richard V. Hirst
