Synopsis

"Your children will die. Your community will die. To give me back my life."

The small rural community of Shettle has fallen into a decline. It is rife with crime and its inhabitants plagued by ill-fortune. When the Circus of Nights arrives the people are drawn to it like moths to a flame: it’s as though they are bewitched. Only four men realise that there is something terribly wrong. And as the town is enclosed in a barrier of ‘sickness’ through which no one can enter or leave, they must do their utmost to protect their loved ones, before it’s too late...

With a new foreword by Robert Young, director of Hammer's 1972 film.

Praise for Other Titles by Mark Morris:

Stitch: "A sizzling banquet of the bizarre that simply demands to be read.' - Sunday Express

Toady: "A strikingly imaginative mixture of horror and fantasy, with a real sense of supernatural terror and with scenes of horror so strange they border on surrealism." - Ramsey Campbell

The Immaculate: "A skilfully constructed tale, topped off with a mind-boggling twist." - The Times

The Secret of Anatomy: "Mark Morris is one of the finest horror writers at work today, and The Secret of Anatomy is his most disturbing work to date. Finely crafted and powerfully written, it is an apocalyptic journey into dark and forbidden territory." - Clive Barker
