Issue nine and three quarters of Polluto magazine goes out this weekend. All the stories revolve around the theme of witchfinders vs the evil red – hence lots of stories about communism, blood, violence and misogyny.
My story, The Causeway, imagines a future where consumerist ladies in the Bristol area are not as harmless as they seem.
Strange, sinister shadows jump and skitter in the firelight. Broomsticks and black hats are silhouetted against the moon, and in the darkness witchfinders hunt their hated enemy. Under the influence of their Ghastly Tome, the army of the Red gathers its forces in the night. Join us as our all-American hero battles against the Reds within their midst. Zombies, magic, witch-hunts, spies, communists, boarding schools, supervillains and bad comic book tie-ins all lie in wait for our intrepid adventurer. Can he save the day before it’s too late?
