Supernatural Tales 29 - Spring 2015



The latest issue is now available to purchase in hard copy form here. I'll have news of ebooks in due course. If you're a subscriber, your copy is either on the way or soon will be.

Katherine Haynes: 'Just a Snuff at Twilight'

The breathing seemed to be a man’s: even, not unnaturally loud, undramatic. It wasn’t the gasping of someone dying, as he had first feared. 
Sam Dawson: 'Cul-de-sac'
