Long time coming

Remember 1999? A long time ago, wasn't it? I was 22; I had a head full of dreams (if not hair); I was yet to meet my wife while I shared a house with my brother, worked in a record shop and spent my free time writing books and short stories that I was convinced would sell the first time I sent them anywhere.

This was a dark blast of horror. Isolation, secrets, old gods, a creepy as hell church and deliberate shades of The Wicker Man. Definitely recommended.
