Here's a sneak preview of some of the delights in store...
* Vintage Ramsey Campbell in 'Just Behind You' - arguably his finest supernatural story in years.
* 'Papa Loaty' is a 22,000-word novella from Donald Burleson, set in America's southern deserts; a gorgeous ghostly tale.
* Conrad Williams summons the Lovecraftian cosmic in 'Once Seen'.
* Algernon Blackwood's darkest moments are captured inexorably by Mark Morris in 'The Places They Hide'.
* Mike O'Driscoll's 'The Hurting House' draws Poe's tell-tale heart into the present.
And so much more, including a cover to die for! Go on, take a look: http://www.fusinghorizons.com/poesprogeny.html

* Tim Lebbon elucidates nature's finely balanced vicissitudes in his Machenian 'The Ripple in the Veil'.
* In a story entitled 'Sitting Tenant', Nicholas Royle shows how the haunted house doesn't always possess shadowy gables...
* Rhys Hughes will break your mind with a quicksilver tale of culinary hallucination called 'The Jam of Hypnos', inspired by Borges!
* In 'The Cubicle Wall', Dominick Cancilla strips the wallpaper from modern office life, and reveals how patterns are sought nonetheless.
* Joel Lane draws upon that thoroughly dark master Cornell Woolrich in order to present a very modern nightmare: read 'A Night On Fire'!
* In 'Save The Snutch', Antony Mann mixes comedy with the most unlikely source of Frankenstein...
