Latest Releases

Things That Wait in the Dark

The thing hiding under the bed. A mocking voice from beyond the grave. Something left behind in the deserted villa. One man’s terrible penance before death.

This brand new collection was compiled from the archives of the late anthologist Hugh Lamb, and from discoveries made by his son, Richard. You’ll find a host of lesser known stories as well as some not seen in an anthology since their original publication.


And Midnight Never Come

The diary with a nasty tale to tell. A burglary gone horribly wrong. The sinister woman at the window. A night alone in the waxworks. 

When Hugh Lamb passed away in 2019, he left behind a collection of unused stories and unpublished anthology ideas.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.
