When the Sun Sets is a short horror story by Lou Yardley. Earlier this year I was lucky enough to win a copy from her and read it pretty much straight away.

Planted on this planet by a rogue team of aliens, Lou Yardley has largely been left to her own devices. This has resulted in a coffee addiction, an obsession with hats, and an ever-growing collection of horror stories. These tales are steeped in gore as much as possible, as Lou loves when things get messy. We really don’t want to think about what her home planet is like. We suspect it’s very stick ...more
