Rating: 5 Stars
Suffer the Children is set in the early twentieth century. A professor of Oxford, whilst conducting research in a library belonging to an acquaintance, discovers a journal written by his associate’s father. In this journal contains a horrifying account of his travels to Sardinia.
This is a short, subtle horror story that reads like it was written in Victorian times. Selwood has mastered this style and the tale leaves you with chills long after you’ve finished reading. An excellent short story that I highly recommend!
