About the Authors
About the Editor
My contribution, “The Briggs Hill Path”, features Harley Warren and Randolph Carter tackling a satyr-like spirit in a slightly raunchy and terrifying fashion.
If you’re interested in such things, it was inspired, in a roundabout fashion, by two songs: ‘Six Gun Gorgon Dynamo’ by the Darkest of the Hillside Thickets and ‘Daughter of the Glade’ by SJ Tucker (singing with Tricky Pixie).
