Winter Children and Other Chilling Tales

by Angela Slatter

Traversing the borderlands between terror and lush, fantastic beauty, Winter Children and Other Chilling Tales, Angela Slatter’s eighth collection of short fiction, gathers twelve tales of horror, the uncanny, and dark lament.

Here, you will find Lovecraftian terrors, Aussie vampires, fell magic, ancient wisdom, wayward children, and twisted moments of desire gone horribly wrong. From the otherworldly threats of “The Song of Sighs” and “Only the Dead and Moonstruck”, to the sand-blasted Australian outback of “Sun Falls”, to the shadowy secrets of the past in the “The Red Forest”, these tales are dark gems that will haunt you long after your first reading.

Originally collected in a limited edition, this publication brings the first-rate chills and nightmarish turns of Slatter’s imagination to a broader readership for the first time. Shortlisted for the Aurealis Award upon its original release, now’s your chance to find out why Stephen Jones has dubbed Angela Slatter ‘a powerful and eloquent voice in horror fiction.’
