Thin Men with Yellow Faces - by Gary Mcmahon and Simon Bestwick - the second entry in a new, quarterly series of premium, signed, chapbooks from the UK - website This Is Horror.
Thin Men with Yellow Faces is the second entry in a new, quarterly series of premium, signed, chapbooks from the UK - website This Is Horror. The website is a great source of info for fans of both Horror writing and films, and I figured I'd take a chance on a charter subscription and I'm glad I did. Not only do you get the signed chapbook, but they send you a link for the e-Book, as well.
Chapbook number 2 is from Gary Mcmahon and Simon Bestwick. To find out more about Gary, visit his website at www.garymcmahon.com and for Simon, visit simon-bestwick.blogspot.co.uk .
Thin Men with Yellow Faces follows Gabrielle Holmes, who works for Child Protection Services, as she follows up on a report of suspicious comments made by young Heather Mayhew.
The report came from Heather's teacher who related that Heather had been seeing strange men at the foot of her bed at night. "Thin men with yellow faces." Shortly after being turned away by the girl's father, Gabby learns of the murder of Heather's teacher. Coincidence? What do you think?
Although a short story, there is plenty going on here as the pace quickens from scene to scene and we find the reality of the situation to be even more sinister than can be imagined.
Once again, I am quite pleased with the product. For more information on this chapbook, or others in the series, be sure to visit http://www.thisishorror.co.uk/this-is-horror-premium-chapbook-series/ .
