Compiled with all things ghoulish and ghastly in mind, the Psychopomp Hallowe’en Special is a collection of six brief tales full of things that go bump in the night!

A haunted road in Cornwall, a bank heist gone wrong and the death of a twin are but some of the themes available in this special celebratory issue.

Featuring work by previous Psychopomp contributors, Jack Buxton and Martin David Edwards and a darkly comical cover by Alice Old, the special draws on themes of tragedy and misconception to fashion an anthology unique in its approach to genre fiction.

Originating within the leafy calm of Hampstead and established to give voice to local authors and likeminded friends and colleagues the world over, Psychopomp intends to address and explore themes of loss and departure within the context of modern pop culture and shifting genres. The work is structured in such a way that each author approaches their conflict on a personal level, coaxing and inviting the reader into communion with the heart of their themes.

Each collection of Psychopomp is intended as a series of tales from worlds we have only previously heard of by hearsay, worlds where we hope never to find ourselves; worlds that may await all of us during darker

Psychopomp intends to walk, to sprint, to sail and fly across the geography of shadows, of which we live in blissful ignorance.

Imagine Shelly in the company of Ozymandias; imagine Byron and de Sade beneath the spires and towers of eternal Dis, Mary Shelley, a guest at the operating table of Doctor Moreau, Gaetano Polidori as a boy at the Artillery Ground of the Honourable Artillery Company.

Imagine that this is a guide book and that your instructor now awaits you at the stern of a boat composed of rotting wood.

Step inside and leave the shore on tides of silence.
