This Dreaming Isle

This Dreaming Isle


Part of Leeds Lit Fest 2020

Northern Short Story Festival presents

Britain has a long history of folk tales, ghost stories and other uncanny fictions, and these literary ley lines are still shimmering beneath the surface of this green and pleasant land. Every few generations this strangeness crawls out from the dark places of the British imagination, seeping into our art and culture. We are living through such a time. This Dreaming Isle is an anthology of new horror stories and weird fiction with a distinctly British flavour. It collects together fifteen brand new horrifying or unsettling stories that draw upon the landscape and history of the British Isles for their inspiration. Some explore the realms of myth and legend, others are firmly rooted in the present, engaging with the country’s forgotten spaces. Join authors Jenn Ashworth (Notes Made While Falling, The Friday Gospels) and Andrew Michael Hurley (The Loney, Starve Acre) and Dan Coxon, the editor of This Dreaming Isle, in this unique short fiction horror event.
