“We've gotta have some Horror Comics
again!” cried publisher Douglas Noble, obsessed, as he stumped in from the
graveyard and thrust his newspaper into the fire. He smashed at
the bare bulb that lit his squalid Dusseldorf apartment with the butt
of his pistol.
The already dingy room was plunged into blackness. “There's too much
*%$* out there and I'm gonna do something about it!” he muttered,
rummaging in the bulb-box for a replacement. Bodymaster Desdemona
handed him some jam on toast. His fingers touched the sticky side first
and he screamed, “What are you trying to do to me!
What you see here - the revived Pocket
series, is the result of Douglas' outburst!

Beneath the churn of a ploughed field, old secrets stir and shiver,
reaching old fingers up through the disturbed earth. An arable
nightmare from the fiercely experimental pen of Olivia Sullivan, sure
to make you shudder the next time you walk through the countryside!
THE SANDS OF FEAR
From Chris Reynolds, visionary author of The New World, Torus, and The
Cinema Detectives, comes a brand new take on terror. Chris likes to
fuss around with his comics and put new ideas in, and a lot of the time
this doesn’t pay off – but he’s an older guy now and has been plugging
away at these stories for years and so it would be a big shame if after
all that bouncing-off-the-walls he didn’t sooner or later come up with
a story that worked!
A MAN OF CERTAIN TALENTS
Mysterious tasks are set by an equally mysterious employer. It’s a
puzzle about identity, set in a world without names. Where no answers
are supplied and the questions are left unsaid. A good turn. A locked
door. A solitary child. A man of certain talents!
