Mummies, traditionally an Egyptian mythological and historical artefact, have ways of coming to life; particularly in the right story. Made infamous by Boris Karloff in the Universal movies, the mummy can be both tragic and horrific. But the mummy is not just an Egyptian phenomena - this anthology of Fantasy and Horror stories, brought to you by Terror Tree Books (Quantum Corsets), features mummies from Peru, Britain, a few from Egypt following the traditional mould, and from cities all over the globe. Don't expect a blockbuster vibe from this variety of tales, expect mystery, intrigue, awe, horror and most importantly - emotion. Unveil what hides beneath the wrappings in 'Mummy Knows Best'
