SYNOPSIS:  “They’ve invaded before, sending their best and brightest to transform popular music for all time. This time, they’re leaving the music behind and focusing on words. The British Invasion has begun again, in a collection of twenty-one unforgettable stories of horror and the dark fantastic.

From the birthplace of horror fiction, the land where writers first dreamed up the icons that shaped the field we know today – Frankenstein’s monster, Count Dracula, the vile Mr Hyde and more. You think you know desperation? Discover a literary tradition born from centuries of violence, pain and suffering, distilled through the veneer of civility, and twisted by the reign of tyrants and kings.

You think you know fear?  From creeping dread to hideous humor, from quiet terror to brutal horror, from mad speculation to unspeakable truth, the twenty-one tales here represent the best that the UK has to offer. The rising stars and the masters of British horror have joined together…  The British Invasion has begun!
