A note from the author:
"Úath is a love song to the horror genre, and the ancient terrors of folk stories. It was born from a fascination of the uncanny, and inadvertently became a method of exercising my own demons: fear of captivity, fear of brutality, fear of fertility, fear of the unknown. I have always been drawn to these dark tales — perhaps this exploration is how we break fear of their grip. I hope you enjoy Úath as much as I did writing it, and I look forward to exploring more unsettling territories in the future."
