Overview

‘What would you do with a machine that forced you to feel the emotions of other people? What would it do with you?’

‘When the garrison of a remote fort is cut off by spider cavalry, what is the old veteran prepared to do to keep his unit alive?’

‘What drives the nice widow who lives in Little Twee Cottage to consider adding anti-personnel mines to her vegetable garden’s defences?’

Nigel Edwards poses these and other questions in this collection of five quirky and thoughtful fantasy stories.

Praise for Nigel’s writing:

“Well-written” doesn’t even begin to describe Ferryman; it’s engrossing.” — Book Brouhaha

“Suffused with surreal charm.” — Ian Whates

Meet the Author

Born far too many years ago, Nigel now live in Milton Keynes, middle England, with his good lady wife, and works in the IT industry in Berkhamsted. He attends the Northampton SF Writers Workshop each month, where contributors work is subjected to very constructive critique.

Nigel's ambition is to win the lottery and retire to the romantic coastline of Cornwall, there to remain until he become a part of the rugged scenery in the fullness of time. He has a motor bike that's rusting nicely, and a car that serves as target practice for any birds that happen to be around. Sometimes he and his wife go for a cycle ride. Sort of. He says "We pedal for about 200 yards then pause while pretending to adjust the chain or something. One day we hope to reach the end of the road."

Nigel has written several short stories, including The Tower, published in Shoes, Ships and Cadavers by NewCon Press, and Waif, published by Greyhart Press. He has also written a children's fantasy novel, The Scrapdragon, that he is looking to place. Currently he is working on a series of vignettes under the working title of The Village, a collection of quirky tales with a linking theme.
