Tonight’s paring is brought to you by Egeus Press and a delicious craft beer from Big Muddy Beer. We have a – limited first edition – collection of short horrors, “Murder Ballads” to read while we sip on some smore and stout.
A collection of seventeen dark tales & novellas, in which some of today’s finest weird story writers provide previously unpublished work inspired by traditional murder ballads. The results are sometimes enigmatic, sometimes witty, sometimes desperately grim; just like the songs they often appear to belong outside – either before or after – recorded time, in some malleable epoch of blood-drenched mythology. They channel not only these ballads, but also that certain brand of outmoded publication which once revelled so joyfully in all manner of luridnes.
Success! You're on the list.
