Tales of a Strange and Curious Sort
Six new short stories, two freshly penned fireside tales, and a couple of classics from the author’s popular reading repertoire, Tales of a Strange and Curious Sort brilliantly showcases Blasdale’s masterful command of both language and style.
A modern storyteller with a gift for the picturesque, our left-handed hero once more delights the reader with his dark tales, each sprinkled liberally with humour and pathos.
As these will be the last short stories the author will be publishing for the foreseeable future, the publisher’s advice is “Get them while they’re hot!”
Contents: Old Bones. Shadows from the Sea. Dead Tired. Ex Libris (from 2019’s About Bloody Time). From Out of the Mist. The Leper’s Room. Lullaby of the Giants. A Warning to the Untrusting. Dereliction. Christmas Passed (from 2015’s Twelve Tales of Christmas).
Honestly, these tales whet my appetite for more of the same. Utterly engaging from the first word, they leave me almost satisfied… This author definitely has me coming back for more. I love the eerie, otherworldly tone of these ghost stories. Mr Blasdale has such a talent for reeling me in, I love the British sensibility and charming voice combined with the spooky feel.Jane Alvey Harris – Award-winning Author of RIVEN and SECRET KEEPER
