Uncle Montague's Tales of Terror

Written by Chris Priestley

Illustrated by David Roberts

Part of the Tales of Terror Series

Uncle Montague's Tales of Terror Synopsis

Uncle Montague lives alone in a big house and his regular visits from his nephew give him the opportunity to relive some of the most frightening stories he knows. But as the stories unfold, a newer and more surprising narrative emerges, one that is perhaps the most frightening of all. Uncle Montague's Tales of Terror , it transpires, are not so much works of imagination as dreadful lurking memories. Memories of an earlier time in which Uncle Montague lived a very different life to his present solitary existence.

The art of the chilling, well-crafted ghost story is still alive and kicking' Literary Review
