The dark bog that hid a thousand evil secrets.

“Guy N. Smith, the author of paperback originals beyond counting, has written a novel whose title is my nominee for the all-time pulp horror classic: The Sucking Pit” – Stephen King – Danse Macabre

Hopwas Wood is a place of mystery and for generations, tales have been told about an ancient gypsy burial site deep within.

Jenny Lawson always knew she had Romany blood flowing through her veins and when given a secret book by her dying Uncle can’t resist the urge to mix the ancient potions described inside. In a matter of hours the virginal jenny is transformed into a knife wielding nymphomaniac.

Entranced by the mysterious Cornelius, Jenny uses all her womanly charms to persuade the wood’s owner to let the gypsy’s set up camp on their holy ground. Ex-boyfriend Chris, an investigative reporter, is horrified by the changes in the girl he once loved and embarks on a quest for the truth only to discover the terror that lies deep within The Sucking Pit !

Full on pulp-horror at it’s most irresistible.
