Book blurb for They Move Below, draft 1. Does this work for you? Improvements? Feel free to comment below!


Horror is everywhere that shadows exist. Underneath the surface of the earth in ancient caves; below the undulating waves of the vast sea; under the cover of thick forest; beneath the thick, rolling clouds during a storm; downstairs in our homes, when we hear the knife drawer rattle in the night. Even our minds and bodies harbour the alien under the skin, the childhood nightmares in our subconscious.

In this collection of 16 tales of horror Karl Drinkwater sews flesh onto the bones of our worst fears whilst revisiting some of horror’s classic settings, such as the teen party, the boat in trouble, the thing in the cellar, the haunted museum, the ghost in the machine, and the urban legends that come true. No-one is safe from the creeping, growing menace. Darkness goes on and on. It hides things, no matter how much we strain our eyes. And sometimes those things are looking back at us.
