"...All the stories are well written, with huge gobbets of terror and weirdness running through their veins. With nine to choose from, you can sample taste from a literary buffet of varied writers' voices and styles, as each one elegantly creates their own fictional world with its own boundaries into which you, the reader, can step inside, visit and unlike some of the characters trapped within, you are allowed to leave. This is quite a privilege." --Alyson Rhodes, on Goodreads.com
"I absolutely loved this anthology...creepy, strange, unexpected, and bizarre. Definitely looking up more by each of these authors!' -- Amy, on Goodreads.com

The Fiends in the Furrows, takes the bustling in the hedgerows and turns them into your darkest nightmares, from Stephen Toase's delightfully macabre The Jaws of Ouroboros, mixes drug lords with an almost Quatermass weirdness, to the almost sensual terror of Lindsay King-Miller's The Fruit, and The First Order of Whaleyville's Divine Basilisk Handlers by Eric J. Guignard which sees old feuds stirred up by religious fervour, this is an anthology that will stir up those primal fears that are ingrained in all of us.
This book describes itself as an anthology of Folk Horror. What is Folk Horror? Frankly, it's whatever you think it is, but that's not a problem, as here we have nine stories from (so far as I can trace) unknown writers, not one of which is a dud.
Having said that, three in particular stood out for me. In the order they appear they are Back Along the Old Track by Sam Hicks (a classical tale of the outsider in a strange village, which carries echoes of The Dunwich Horror and The Shadow over Innsmouth), The Fruit by Lindsay King-Miller (just when you thought it was safe to go back into the orchard...) and The Jaws of Ouroboros by Steve Toase (some carniverous landscape and a crime boss who'd make Don Corleone head for the hills). None of these will leave me in a hurry.
At least a couple of the stories could've used a little more care at the proof-reading stage, but this is a very minor point.
