Valentine Williamsabout this book: These stories have been published separately in dark fiction journals such as Dark Tales, Horror Masters and Not Your Eyes. Here they are all together.
Alternative, strange stories about the world not quite as we know it. There's the woman with the strange pet, the man who goes for a swim, comes out and can't find his family again, as IN THE PENGUIN COLONY, the undertakers in CROW and the holiday makers reliving Greek myths in THE SLEEP OF REASON, and many more.
I wanted to explore the darker side of the known world, introduce a bit of magic and illogical logic and allow the reader's imagination to take over.
'I am not a lover usually of short stories but this collection of stories of varying lengths kept me gripped. We meet well drawn characters ranging from the merely odd to the down right sinister and also unexplained and spooky happenings.'
This would appeal to the readers who enjoyed 'Tales of the Unexpected' Dahl's 'Kiss Kiss' and James' 'The Turn of the Screw' and other stories. Bite sized chunks of horror for discerning readers.
