The Trees and Other Stories: Horror Tales From The Author of Maneater and Skarlet
Prey (Maneater #2) by Thomas Emson
He tells the reader what they want to hear about how a strong-minded group of people would act when the apocalypse comes—how they like to think themselves would act if this were ever to occur. I enjoyed the iconic, well-known British locations present throughout. Carry on, Wilson…. But what he brings that is different to this backstreet, full-of-bravado corner of the genre, is unprecedented fear—what if this was to actually happen, today?

Many who ventured into the forest would return transformed, and with tales to tell.
Some would never return. The primeval forest also brought the awesome power of nature and the wild in proximity to man. Today, human civilization dominates the planet and nature is on the run. But when man lived on the edge of the primeval forest, the village was small and the forest was overwhelmingly large, apt to swallow you up. It is easy to see then why the forest is so prominent and vivid in old European literature. In fact, the forest looms so large in these stories it is almost a character unto itself. The Brothers Grimm Jacob right and Wilhelm left For example, the Hansel and Gretel story probably originated in the time of famine and the Black Death, the middle of the last millennium, when parentless children struggling to survive were a bleak reality.
And a story strikingly similar to Snow White was recorded by Ovid, born in 42 BCE, and it was probably not a new story then. In each case, the forest is presented as a liminal space, a place of transformation. It represents the state in which you are no longer what you were, but not yet what you will become, the in-between. This space can be frightening and disorienting, but without passing through it, nothing changes.
The forest is also a pagan space, the realm of the old gods.
It reminds us that the victory of Christianity over the beliefs that came before was at best a partial victory. The pagan religions that preceded Christianity were more likely to elevate nature and the feminine and were more comfortable with sexuality and magic. So our ancestors projected all their fear and excitement about nature—especially female sexual power and agency—onto the forest.

When Little Red Cap enters the cottage, the wolf swallows her hole. Having emerged from the belly of the beast, Little Red Cap has been transformed. She is no longer innocent but again exemplifies feminine virtue. The Hansel and Gretel story also presents the forest as a place both sinister and magical.
Like Little Red Cap, the danger increases the farther the children go into the forest. The forest, in this case, is vast. The power of nature is embodied in the character of the witch. First, the children are led to the house by a white bird and are delighted to discover it is made out of bread and cakes. But of course, it was constructed by the witch to lure children to their doom. This reflects the primal fear of being eaten by a wild animal—ultimate triumph of nature over man.
