Captain Damnation and other strange tales - Anthology of short stories

Harry Riley releases a collection of bone chilling short stories that will defy your efforts to put it down. This collection of short stories will intrigue and shock you in equal measure.

A collection of strange and quirky tales with a touch of black humour from an author who is an unashamed admirer of Charles Dickens, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Edgar Allan Poe, and Roald Dahl’s quirky tales.
These strange tales are written from the author’s earliest childhood memories of blood curdling yarns on the radio, spoken by a man with a dark sepulchral voice.

Author Harry Riley says; “these memories have left me with a lifetime’s passion for what were once known as ‘Penny Dreadfuls’ or American Dime Novels: lurid tales of mysterious mayhem designed to deliciously shock and horrify our impressionable young minds.”

“Science can explain away so many mysteries but it is often the creepy-unexpected that trips you up and opens the door to superstitious dread”.
