The Horror Beneath by C.P. Webster
FREE EBOOK FOR PREMIUM SUBSCRIBERS AT THE BOTTOM
C.P. Webster, author of The Reliquary in BZA4 brings us another English style cosmic horror tale in his Bizarchives debut novella The Horror Beneath. Mr. Webster is another seasoned veteran from the ol’ United Kingdom who is stepping up in his wiser years to join the underground fiction renaissance.
After a barrage of submissions and popping up in the various social media channels, he finally got on our radar. After publishing his short story in BZA4 he approached me with a manuscript that he’s been sitting on. I loaded it up into my text to speech reader to listen to while I cooked dinner. I ended up reading the entire thing deep into the evening. The Horror beneath completely sucked me in and after I was finished I messaged Mr. Webster and told him we’ve gotta publish this.
The Horror Beneath is a cosmic horror mystery tale that slowly unravels as you go along. Webster lands somewhere between M.S. Jones and A. Cuthbertson with his very English flavor, casting threads and hooks that coalesce throughout the story. Like the aforementioned gentlemen, he focuses more on content than he does on style which separates his work from more Lovecraftian writers like Shane Hawks which makes for a very smooth read, placing all focus on the tale itself.
The characters are relatable and grounded, there’s a spooky tome, folklore, occultism, magic, and most importantly, a thrilling and satisfying ending with all manners of unfathomable crawling chaos that makes your hair stand up.
C.P. Webster delivers an awesome and complete story in about 190 pages. The perfect book to read on a long car ride or over a few night reading sessions before bed. Plus, in typical based Bizarchives fashion, we’ve got it listed at $9.50 on Amazon.
We’ll have The Horror Beneath in our inventory at TheBizarchives.com/shop in a few weeks. But if you want to grab it on Amazon before then, we appreciate that too.
