Paupers' Graves - Pre-Orders

Paupers' Graves is my new novella, being launched at this year's Fantasycon. It's one of four novellas being released simultaneously by Hersham Horror–the others being by Stephen Bacon, Mark West and Phil Sloman, so I couldn't be in better company.

More to say nearer the time about this one, as it's a story I'm especially proud of. But will just say that the ebook version is available to preorder now.

In a Nottingham cemetery, hidden away from the grandiose tombs of the city’s rich, are the old paupers’ graves. Katherine and her team have been ordered to create an exhibit based around the lives of those unfortunates buried beneath. But the paupers represent part of the city’s history that Katherine prefers to avoid thinking about… as well as part of her own. 

But the dead, having had nothing in life, are enraged that even the truth of how they lived is being taken from them. Buried up to twenty under one stone, they whisper in the dark. Maybe they can show Katherine and her colleagues what their history was really like… and how cheap life was considered.
