SILURES is an eighteen-page, double-stitched horror/weird fiction DIY zine, put together by my own grubby hands. It contains three original short horror stories, four poems and two photographs. All content is my own original work.

Efa, a quiet fair-haired and dark-eyed girl, was the only daughter of the village farmer.
