The Fiends in the Furrows Edited by David T. Neal and Christine M. Scott

There are so many different aspects to Horror. There is something for everyone. Whether it is psychological to body horror…It isn’t all about monsters and gore. The stories can come from deep within our psyches, our deepest darkest fears or from legends and myths we have been told as children. Folk horror hold a special place in my heart. I grew up reading Scary Tales to Read in the Dark and hearing stories from my nan about changelings and fairies. Fiends in the Furrows fed my desire for new folk horror and gave me some stories that I won’t forget anytime soon.

Synopsis: A anthology of folk horror stories.

What I liked: I love how the stories fit well together and fit with the theme. It was perfect for an Autumn moving into Winter read. There was a wide variety of stories that were presented from people eating stone circles to a community that have to pick fruit. I don’t want to go into to many details and ruin this lovely book for anyone.

What I didn’t like: There wasn’t anything that I didn’t like about this anthology.

Star Rating 4.5 stars

My Thoughts: This anthology is firmly ensconced in my heart. There are so many things to talk about. But I don’t want to ruin this lovely anthology. This is probably going to be a seasonal reread for me. It felt like autumn. It felt like the stories fit the season. If you haven’t read any folk horror then this would be a great introduction. If you are already a fan of folk horror then Fiends in the Furrows would be great addition to your library.

BIG thanks to Nosetouch Press for sending me a review copy!!
