A troubled hipster is seduced by an electricity pylon. Sinister omens manifest in a supermarket car park. A motorway bridge becomes a father. A bioengineered abomination lurks in a Gloucestershire railway terminus. The weekly bin collection pushes a man over the edge. Vampiric entities stalk B&Q. Gareth E.
