Epona by H.E. Bulstrode

indie ebook cover


Victorian Gothic Meets Folk Horror.
‘Nothing good did ever come out the Dunchester Cut, nor the land thereabouts. Them as lives up at the big house might’ve thought otherwise once, but not no more. Not after what did happen.’

Was it the molecatcher or the navvies who brought it back? Neither would claim it as their own, and neither would wish to. Who would? Whatever it should be, it would seem that it finds its pleasure in the riot of the chase, and in the choosing of its particular quarry.

Welcome to the village of Dundercott, Wiltshire. It is the spring of 1846, and the life of this small community seems set to change as the outside world of Victorian progress makes its presence felt: the railway has arrived, as has a young vicar come down from Cambridge to take up his living, and bring the light of literacy to the people. That, however, is not all that they bring, for something in the soil has stirred.

A companion piece to Victorian gothic ghost story At Fall of Night.

About The Author...

indie author

H.E. Bulstrode

    

The author's childhood and formative years were spent in the English West Country, a region in which reality and fantasy are frequently confused, and where what elsewhere would be taken as peculiar, regarded as nothing more than an everyday occurrence. Soaked in myth, folklore and cider, his imagination eventually whirred into life and prompted him to pen, or at least type, a number of understated tales of the uncanny, drawing upon his wry observations of esoteric subcultures and beliefs, and the rich store of lore that seems locked into the land itself.

From the mist, the frost, and the wind, comes something ambling through the murk, seeking to ensnare the unwary: a village cunning man; a malignant Jacobean mannequin; a psychedelic Crowley wannabe; the sickle-wielding spirit of old Dorset; a pious guide who emerges from the fabric of a venerable minster; a mediaeval animalistic heretic with a still beating heart. Ghost stories, bizarre rites, and mental disintegration populate a world in which the living and the dead meet in an eternal present, and the author dares - the most horrific thing of all - to use adverbs where appropriate.

His tales have frequently been compared to the likes of those encountered in 'Tales of the Unexpected' and 'The Twilight Zone', but the Bulstrodian world, as you will discover, is a realm unto itself, and quite distinct from either.

He is currently working on a number of future publications, including an occult mystery set in Edwardian Yorkshire, and a full-length novel focusing upon the themes of superstition, piracy, and religious fanaticism, set in seventeenth-century Cornwall and beyond. The latter opens amidst an atmosphere of unease unleashed by a supernatural visitation. Both will be published in 2018.
