Brian Atherton

Brian Atherton is from Bolton and has taught English Literature and English Language for the last 25 years in sixth form colleges in Bolton, Manchester and Blackburn. He is an avid reader of fiction, especially the supernatural and horror and is a fan of M.R. James, Algernon Blackwood, Edgar Allan Poe and Susan Hill. He believes the best stories need not be too explicit but should aim to create the suggestion of danger to convey unease and anxiety in the reader.
