So, here are some of the books I've been enjoying recently.
|Errantry by Elizabeth Hand is a fascinating, literary collection. It contains |
among others The Maiden Flight of McCauley's Bellerophon and Near Zennor;
two cracking stories you really should not miss. Review soon
|Superb Tartarus edition of Nugent Barker's classic collection, |
Written With My Left Hand. Contains the much-anthologised and
influential Whessoe among many other wonderful tales.
|I recently reviewed Rebecca Lloyd's excellent Mercy and Other Stories here, |
and so it was no surprise to me to find out that The View From Endless Street
is just as wonderful. Full of incisive, intriguing tales, it is a must read. Review soon
|The Haunted Grove is a tightly written novella from Tim Jeffreys. |
It's pretty compelling; I read it in one sitting. You might do too
|Perspectives is an intriguing project; each story |
in this collection is inspired by a piece of photography, and the two writers
(Darcia Helle and Maria Savva) take turns to provide their tales.
Some are dark, some less so; all are compelling
|Of course, Supernatural Tales are always essential reading; and now |
they are available on Amazon (back issues included) it's
even easier to enjoy them. Number 26 is as good as the modern
ghost story collection gets!
I would love to review all of these books, but there are only so many hours in the day. However, do keep an eye out for the ones I manage... and in the meantime, I hope you enjoy some of my recommendations as much as I did.
