Folk Tales from the Hinterland is out!

December 2, 2021

folktaleshinterland2021gurtdogIf you’re looking for a new selection of creepy tales to cosy up with this winter season, then look no further. ‘Folk Tales from the Hinterland’ is out now from Gurt Dog Press (the LGBTQIA+ small press with the best logo going!) and features ten dark stories inspired by folklore.

My story ‘The Holes in the Air’ is one I’m particularly attached to and I’m over the moon it’s found a suitable home. It’s a tale about hagstones, and also of what is real versus what other people see and lead you to believe.


Come get lost in the Hinterland with these ten dark tales that draw on inspiration from folklore.

Clever mortals fool Death, escape peril and battle curses. Witches seduce with malicious intent and monsters trick across different centuries. A child discovers a hidden secret about themselves while a hell-hound finds their past. Love is found between fearful creatures and a rivalry between cousins comes to a bitter end.

The line between what is good and what is evil blurs, leaving you asking yourself, who is the monster here and would I act any different if placed in their shoes?

Featuring stories by: L. B. Shimaira, Jamie Rose, April-Jane Rowan, A. J. Van Belle, Toni Mobley, Die Booth, Claire Olivia Golden, Dez Schwartz, Antonija Meznaric and Eleonora Prandini.

Beware, because once you enter the Hinterland, you might not be able to find your way home.


Gurt Dog Press publishes stories for Queer readers of Horror and other forms of speculative fiction that don’t focus on Romance as the sole vehicle for promoting LGBTQ+ identities.
