‘By their very nature, horror stories should shine a light on our darkest fears and taboos. If you’re coming to BEYOND THE VEIL with the hope of experiencing nothing more than a few cosy and familiar chills, therefore, I’m afraid you’re in for a rude awakening. The stories in this anthology are confrontational. They are about things that truly disturb us; things that prey on our minds. Most horror stories stem from a loss of control, and that’s certainly true of many of the characters and situations you will encounter in these pages. As ever, there is something for everyone here: there are monsters both human and otherworldly; there are shifting realities; childhood nightmares; dark magics conjured by desperation and despair. As human beings we kid ourselves that we have a semblance of control over our lives, our circumstances, our environment, our health… but it doesn’t take much for that control to be wrested from us, and for the rug to be wrenched violently out from under our feet. And that is the essence of true horror.’ – Mark Morris
