No one can handle Scottish folklore with elements of the darkest horror, science fiction and fantasy, suspense and adventure like William Meikle.
In Samurai and Other Stories you’ll find numerous ghosts, many Scotsmen, a big blob, some holy relics, some unholy relics, a Mothman, a barbarian, some swordplay, a shoggoth and people that nobody expects.
This collection by William Meikle brings together stories from the past decade in an exploration of the perils of exploring dark places, both external and internal.
“There is no doubt in my mind that Mr. Meikle is one of the premier storytellers of our time.” – Famous Monsters of Filmland
“Meikle is a writer that can grace the page with words of beauty whilst twisting a nightmare into grotesque shapes before your eyes.” – Len Maynard and Mick Sims
“William Meikle’s short stories and novels are shining examples of what is missing in horror fiction today: atmospheric in style, old-school in character, with an intriguing story to be told.” – David Wynn, Mythos Books
