What is industrial horror? Is it smoke stacks and gas towers? Is it the metal cranes of the shipyards turned golem? The stuff of our nightmares has been evolving since the industrial revolution and the rise of the machines. Machines aren't our friends. We were told they would bring freedom and leisure time, three day weeks and the like, but what they brought was redundancy, replacement, and the scrap heaps of life. How can you not look for horror in something capable of so much wholesale destruction of hope? And that's what's waiting for you in here, the wholesale destruction of hope at the hands of twisted industrial landscapes, smoke stacks and gas towers and metal golems that have no souls, no spirits, and can so easily drape themselves in our skins and walk in our shoes, doing everything we can do, faster, and with ruthless efficiency, removing the need for us. Thats the world these stories live in, and its a bleak place.

A cracking review of our anthology The Darkest Battlefield has appeared on the Sci-Fi and Fantasy Review site - where it was said:
"The Darkest Battlefield is an important collection of historical horror, being one of the few attempts I’m aware of to tackle the subject of the First World War in the context of the sub-genre. The four stories found within its pages are superbly written and tightly plotted, and filled with psychological, supernatural and often all-too human examples of the horrors to be found in the context of that world-altering conflict. I thoroughly enjoyed reading through The Darkest Battlefield and would hope that similar collections, looking again at the First World War and also at other conflicts, are to come from Demain Publishing."
We truly appreciate the review and the kind words.
