The Lovecraftian Thing a Day (2018) No.175: The Tunnel by Catherine Fisher

Whilst I was not entirely impressed with the first entry into the Three Imposters press new Wentwood Tales series of Machenesque chapbooks, a more recent publication - ‘The Tunnel’ by Catherine Fisher - is an outstanding piece, with subtle intimations of both Machen’s ‘The White People’ and his horrifying mythology of the ‘Little People’ merging with Fisher’s melancholy and resonant take on the fearfulness of childhood. A really excellent addition to the series and, as always with Three Imposters, the production values are beautiful in their simplicity.
