Über den Autor
As penance for past deeds, Edmund Glasby grew up in Morecambe and studied Egyptian Archaeology at University College London and Archaeology and Anthropology at Oxford... Morecambe, which has more than its share of the strange and unsavoury, provided him with a better education. After turning his back on academia, he now writes in the genres of dark fantasy and supernatural thriller, having been brought up on horror; his father was John S. Glasby the prolific supernatural writer.
In 2010, his first novel was Disciple of a Dark God, a far-ranging dark fantasy epic. His first collection of all-new supernatural stories, The Dyrsgol Horror and Others was published by Borgo in 20013, and was followed by The Ash Murders, The Chaos of Chung-Fu, Ghouls of the Undercity, Labyrinth of the Lost, Dark Shadows and a novel, Weird Shadows Over Morecambe. For his UK publishers, Ulverscroft, he has also written three detective thrillers, A Murder Most Macabre, and The Postbox Murders, and The Doppelganger Deaths (forthcoming). His latest supernatural collection, Death After Death, was specially compiled for Shadow Publishing
When he is not writing he is the captain of a local archery club and he has won a trophy or two both at local and European level with the English longbow he made.
It was in a litter-strewn back alley in downtown Chicago that Private Investigator Jack Murphy first saw the poster: "THE SORCERY OF CHUNG-FU, An Evening of Oriental Magic and Mystery." Below the image of Chung-Fu were a series of alarming drawings: a scantily-clad woman shown in mid-scream, strapped to a rack as a pendulum blade swung low; a grinning, hideous, puppet-like thing, its dagger held aloft; a man cowering from two tigers; and, in the bottom left corner, another man, open-mouthed, vomiting a stream of spiders. There was a bizarreness to it that unnerved him. Could there be a connection between it and the rash of disappearances that he was investigating? And was the mysterious Chung-Fu the cause? Five stories of supernatural horror and mystery, by a rising star of weird fiction!
