Hugh Lamb was one of the world’s leading anthologists of vintage macabre . During his long career he unearthed a host of little-known authors and also brought to light lost works from the more well-known. When he passed away in 2019, Hugh left behind a collection of unused stories and unpublished anthology ideas. Using this material as a starting point, Hugh’s son Richard has compiled And Midnight Never Come, the first brand new Hugh Lamb anthology for 30 years.

Delve, if you dare, into this unique age of ghosts, monsters, killers and fog-enshrouded chills.
