A Shiver

$ 11.95 USD

As time passes, everything changes. The world we live in is in turmoil, we stampede from one crisis to the next, never heeding the grand design,If indeed there is one. Imagine now that nothing changes but the now. The now we know here and today is the same as it always was, the same as it always will be. Has not the world always suffered from turmoil, are our lives not the same as those who have gone before us with little more than superficial differences? This is an explanation of time, the characters essentially the same though they live centuries apart, their thoughts, hopes and fears differ little from the reality of today, their goals essentially the same; to eat, have happy lives, to love and be loved, to search endlessly for a contentment that can never be realised. As usual Raymond Walker has brought these unanswered questions to life in an exciting tale of love, passion and loss, Romance and war that will keep every reader mesmerised from the very first pages to the dramatic conclusion.

 

A River of Tears

£ 7.95 

This collection of six short stories all based around a river tell of hope and loss, tragedy and abiding love, despair and contentment. Much as the river shapes the characters by its presence so does it enter their lives and change them often in ways they could not imagine. These are tales of magic and mystery, river sprites and faerie queens, werebeasts, nymphs and dryads. And they are tales of ordinary everyday people caught in situations beyond their control

 

Twisted Sisters

A chance meeting begins a tale of love, sex, deceit, infidelity, loss and tragedy. This moving, heartwarming tale of real life and unrequeited love in this modern unpredictable world is quirky and offbeat as well sharp and insightful. In equal measures it will make you laugh at the absurdity of life and cry at its many injusticies. This modern love story of real people living everyday lives will suprise amaze and delight every reader.

 

Tales from this Northern Land

£ 9.45 

THIS NORTHERN LAND is ancient; steeped in history and tragedy. Rich with myth and superstition bathed in folklore and legend. Not for us was the rich civilisation of the Romans, Greeks or Mesopotamia, rather a dark and barbaric land where cultures flourished for short periods only to be trod under the foot of the next marauding invader and vanishing forever. These people left a legacy of cairns, standing stones, brochs and duns, castles and hill forts scattered across the land. As you walk this northern land, everywhere you see traces of folk that have long since vanished and you wonder how these people lived, what they thought worshiped and feared. You wonder if their knowledge and thoughts are still in the land, in the mountains, forests and monuments. These stories though set in the modern world, reflect the dark past and history, the unknown places and wonders of this northern land at the point where reality dips into fantasy and becomes a soup of possible pasts and futures.

 

 

Nut Brown Eyes

£ 5.99 

A magical, mystical tale of love and betrayal set against the grand backdrop of the Scottish Highlands. It is amazing what a prfectly ordinary walk in the woods can lead to in an ancient and sparsely populated land that teems with tales of witches and ghosts, sprites and goblins. Where you can still walk for days without seeing another living soul.

 

Cornelius

£ 8.99 

The young Cornelius marches with the fifth legion to chastise the barbarian hordes of Dacia who dared cross Roman borders; He dreams of glory wealth and a later life of ease in the senate. But his life was to change; in a decisive battle the legion is crushed. The few survivors, fleeing to the carpathian mountains, harried by war bands; starving and dying from the extreme cold find that there is something more to fear. There is something stalking these mountains, something older and darker than simply death. Cornelius finds himself welcoming this darkness and becoming part of it. This is a story of blood and treachery. War and power, it is a story of horror pain and damnation. But it is also a story of friendship and eternal love for all changes in an eternity. This tale takes you from the mighty civilisations of Rome,Samarkand and China to the barbarian lands of Scotland and Romania. It is a tale of gut-wrenching battles, ambition and blood; fought both with friends and between them.
