Here are the 10 stories therein, not necessarily in order:
The Other Side of the HIll
The Bells Line of Road
The Trains Don't Stop Here
Not So Much Pride, More Perseverance
Turning the Cup
I'm Not a Timid Man
These are loosely related tales of urban strangeness. They are in the same vein as Dying Embers, but less overtly autobiographical. Several have been published elsewhere; The Other Side of the Hill was in CM Muller's Nightscript III, Strike Three was in the Dark Lane Anthology by Tim Jeffreys and Turning the Cup was in Haunted, edited by Alex Davis. Oh, and Paradise Point will be part of CM Muller's upcoming Nightscript V.
I'm pleased with the way these stories sit together and I feel that they move on in a satisfying way from those which comprise Dying Embers. I'm hopeful that the collection will become available at some stage, but I realise that it may take a while to find a suitable home. In the meantime, my intention is to resurrect this blog with some reviews and chat about strange and darksome tales in general. Watch this space!
