Indie Bookshelf Releases – Horror Tree Christmas Special!

This Indie Bookshelf Releases post is a special one. It’s a thankyou to all those who work so hard behind the scenes to keep Horror Tree running – from the boss, Stuart Conover, to those who do the tech stuff, write the articles, search out submissions, review, edit, or support via patreon or sponsorship,. Without the fantastic folk who volunteer their free(!) time and support, Horror Tree wouldn’t be what it is. Thank you all.

Check out the work of all these wonderful people and perhaps buy a book or two or three from them! There’s certain to be something on the shelf which grabs your fancy and would make a great gift either for someone – or yourself!
