A Necessary End: The Curse of Courtenay

by Chris Tetreault-Blay.

Collection of poetry in English and Japanese by Paul Charlton

The Courtenay family is cursed, and doomed to repeat their cycle of despicable acts against their fellow man, all in the name of continuing their lineage. The curse comes in the form of the figure known as the Trickerjack, who serves the Devil to steal souls from the living.

The family he was born from are far from normal. Fear, obsession, torture. They all exist as everyday activities for them.

For the first time, the short stories that were featured in past releases 'House of Courtenay' and 'Blackgang: The Trickerjack Trail' are brought together to tell the Courtenay origin story from a new perspective, along with three brand-new tales.

The backdrop is provided by the story of teenager Zack Charley, whose unquenchable curiosity takes him to a mysterious eerie-looking house above the deary town he lives in, owned and inhabited by one of the last-surviving Courtenay descendants.

Once inside, he is taken on a journey he will never forget. And one he will likely never escape from.
