Now for my second Halifax purchase! Terror Tales of East Anglia is the latest of Paul Finch's regional anthologies, where stories by some of Britain's most famous modern horror authors alternate with short, to-the-point chunks of local folklore and supernatural phenomena. And all in a cheap(ish) paperback! I enjoyed Terror Tales of the Lake District, but issues with Paypal prevented me from buying the daftly-named Terror Tales of the Cotswolds. So I was delighted to find this latest number in Halifax, in tangible form on Reggie Oliver's bookstall with no bloody "payment gateways" (actually Portals to Hell) to navigate.

Jonathan Oliver's haunted house-themed anthology House of Fear was one of the best books of 2012 - full of scary wheat with remarkably little chaff. Now, he's got another themed collection out - Magic, An Anthology of the Esoteric and Arcane (which both mean the same thing, but never mind the pretentious title.)

Another Success for Oliver? )
