What People Say

This debut collection, published by indie magazine Morpheus Tales, showcases a talented newcomer with a firm grasp of all things weird and grim. Accompany Leyshon to Leddenton for a double-handful of the bleakest horrors imaginable. 

Joseph D’Lacy, The Guardian

Matt Leyshon’s stories manage to combine threads of dark-hued English pastoral fantasy with the logic of nightmare. Like Worzel Gummidge cast adrift in a Ligottian fever-dream, these interlinked tales carve out their own niche in which to fester.

Gary McMahon, The Concrete Grove

I can’t help loving this book, rather in spite of myself. And in the spite of the way I have been treated. Stalked by a book.
