Disturbing horror tales which plumb the depths of nightmare, madness and the supernatural.
These fractured dream-like tales are snapshots of the dark world of teeming evil within the dungeons of the soul. Creatures of Clay represents Stephen Sennitt’s best work as exhumed from small press horror zines — much of it long out of print. Juxtaposing the elegant nightmare prose of Robert Aickman and Thomas Ligotti, the book has a lurid pulp aesthetic, derived from Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos and the Skywald Horror-Mood comics of the seventies.
You will find within a schizoid infatuation with sepia cellars, black crawling pits, filth encrusted walls, lycanthropic teenagers, evil little toys, calcified vampire-beings, disembodied sex maniacs, reptilian alien fiends, hypnotised mad women, corpses with living eyes, bloody Rorschach blots, beetle clocks, 4D sound, terra cotta demons, human snails, and basements full of suffocating dead things…
Will appeal to collectors of weird fiction and general horror fans alike.
