High John the Conqueror (2022)
Tariq Goddard
"A wyrd & eerie tale for wyrd & eerie times, High John the Conqueror is, like High John de Conqueror itself, 'a genuine hybrid and a one-off,' crafting & grafting police noir, folk horror and occult parapolitics into an altered States of the Nation novel of monsters past and present. PD James meets MR James!"
