In her debut poetry collection Where Decay Sleeps, Anna Cheung blends traditional Gothic imagery, modern technology and Chinese folklore. Walk the Gothic ruins of monsters, but tread carefully! In Rhiannon Grist’s novella The Queen of the High Fields, Carys Price and Angharad 'Hazard' Evans, strike out from their disenfranchised seaside town to take ownership of the High Fields, a mythical island brimming with world-bending promise, hoping to find a place where they can live as they choose. Instead they find an ancient power that tears their friendship apart. The forest in A.M. Shine’s The Watchers isn't charted on any map. Every car breaks down at its treeline. Left stranded, Mina is forced into the dark woodland only to find a woman shouting, urging Mina to run to a concrete bunker. As the door slams behind her, Mina finds herself in a room with a wall of glass. At nightfall, the Watchers come above ground, emerging to observe their captive humans. Who are the Watchers and why are these creatures keeping them imprisoned, keen to watch their every move?
