20 ghost stories, both ancient and modern, set in the Welsh Marches. Full of atmosphere and with a great sense of location. Original stories based on folk tale motifs that will appeal to visitors and residents of the Welsh Borderlands.
These twenty short stories are infused with the mysterious folklore of the Welsh Marches. The author has used snippets of tales which he discovered during the course of his researches into this subject. From these he has reimagined full stories. The tales range from early medieval times to the present day, and include sad love stories and the terrifying supernatural. But we also learn that not all ghosts are out to harm us, although some are, and that shape shifting swans can get the better of rapacious villains.
Above all what comes through these stories is a great sense of place, a unique landscape. Although we live in the twenty first century, with its motor cars and electric light, on the other side of the hedge, outside our windows, there can still exist creatures of magic and legend, that could tap us on the shoulder at any moment.
"Strange old folk tales don't inevitably live forever. They need new energy to survive - and a fresh storytelling voice can uncover long-lost levels of meaning. David Phelps, connoisseur of Welsh Border Gothic, is a vital part of a tradition as old as time." Phil Rickman, author of the Merrily Watkins series.
