Product description

Review

Atmospheric; intriguing. Beautifully observed characters. --BARBARA ERSKINE, best selling author of Time's Legacy.

A real page-turner, worthy of comparison with the early John Fowles but distinctively Raymond Nickford. --ALLEN J. MILLINGTON SYNGE , author of Bowler Batsman Spy.

Atmospheric, vibrant, spooky page-turner. --REAY TANNAHILL, historian, novelist and author of The Seventh Son.

From the Publisher

Haunted Books’ new series begins with the original of Raymond Nickford’s "Aristo’s Family" and now includes the new paperback edition, together with "Mister Kreasey’s Demon". The collected stories in the same genre, "Twists in the Tale", are planned for publication in November 2004 and this is to be followed by his current novel "A Child for a Summer", in 2005.

Nickford brings to this genre his characteristically poignant and very powerfully rendered underlying themes, not without conflict and the macabre but certainly without the tedium of excess bodies or the ‘shock and gore’ onslaught on literature.

The macabre is used, but where it serves to heighten the extremity to which the characters may be driven, while ‘gross out’ is regarded as a poor substitute for characters whose lives are memorable because here uniquely stressed and tested.

This is contemporary fiction - particularly eerie but more convincing because not reliant on Gothic props.

Locations in remoter villages of Cyprus’s Troodos mountains, in menacing corners of London or in the cosy yet infamous Laburnum Lodge* of Malvern, together with sensitive exploration of character, should add interest for both UK and overseas listeners as well for the disabled whose enjoyment can often only be a listening experience. [*Fictional]

Haunted Books hopes to be able to arrange to bring you the series as audio books.
