A brand new collection of stories and interludes from Joseph Freeman, published Halloween 2018.

In these pages you will find something stalking the guests of an autumnal shooting-party in the Scottish Highlands. A churchyard where the dead cannot rest, and cursed country lanes. Strange forces walk the streets of towns drained of hope, and of life. A wonderful gift that might also be the greatest curse is to be found at the heart of an enchanted forest. Wishes are fulfilled at a terrible cost. An unexpected guest at a music recital changes the lives of two lonely people. An ancient evil waits amidst the shelves of forgotten treasures in a labyrinthine antique store. A remote French farmhouse offers sanctuary for two stranded motorists on a night they will ever afterwards wish to forget. And sometimes there is no greater horror than the loss of love.

Woven throughout these stories are glimpses of moreÖ the eternal, the fantastic, the seductive, and the unforgettable. The Elsewhere & Otherwise.

2017 marks my 25th year of being a published writer.

If that surprises you, spare a thought for my feelings. I have a hard enough time believing Iím older than that. The realisation came as an utter surprise to me. For days I kept thinking Iíd made a mistake, and sooner or later somebody would point out the truth. But the more congratulations (not to mention stunned looks) I received, the more I grew to accept it. And then I realised there was no way I could let this occasion go by without some kind of celebration.

So here I am. Iím back with a new website, which will gradually take shape over the coming months (so keep on checking back, as more is added and improved), and Iím also at work on some new short stories Ė ideas which have been growing in the dark corners of my mind for quite some time now, yearning for release. Iím also hoping to do some events later in the year, making appearances and presenting my work to you in one of the ways Iíve always liked best Ė through giving live readings and meeting up with friends and fans.

In the meantime, feel free to get in touch with me, through any of the arcane riuals assigned on my contact page. I'm out there... and I'm listening...

I thank you for these 25 years. I thank you for your ongoing interest and for your support.

Hereís to the next 25 years.
