On a moonshadow wintry night,
When the sky is a lake of black ink
Afloat with the bloom of the dying light,
The Wassailers will come to drink.
Em Dehaney’s evil Christmas poem The Wassailers is a traditional folk-tale with a terrifying twist, warning of the dangers of modern greed and consumerism.
Krzysztof Wronski’s pen and ink illustrations are dark, dense and dripping with old world menace.
Burdizzo Books have brought the two together, along with foreword by horror legend Graham Masterton, in this gruesome yet gripping festive nightmare. Plus, three bonus Christmas stories by Em Dehaney and Burdizzo founder Matthew Cash.
Curl up by the fire, fill your cup with mulled wine and pray The Wassailers never knock on your door…
