Thieves of Sigh

An Old School Pulp Horror Novelette by Zach Black

There are strange goings on at the idyllic Aberwillow Loch Retreat. People are disappearing. They come from all over the country to soak in the beauty of the land and sometimes, to sample the abundant Liberty Caps.

When Greg and Steph Pullman arrive at the retreat for a much needed break away from the bustle of their busy lives, they are met by an old friend and owner of Aberwillow Loch Retreat, Arthur Taggart and they settle for a relaxing week in the country. But not all is as it seems. Beneath the loch, something is rising to the surface; something so terrifying it will take your breath away.

First published in 2008. Republised in 2024 by Phobica Books.
