Overview

“West's writing manages to be both upliftingly happy and in the same moment breathtakingly sad.” — The Eloquent Page

“…this one grabs your heart-strings and twists them like a knife.” — Matthew Fryer’s Hellforge

Michael struggles to come to terms with the death of his wife. He has visions of her calling to him, inviting him to the beyond.

At the Bereaved Partners’ Group, he learns that he is not the only one left behind who can hear the departed beckon them… to the Mill.

This Greyhart Press eBook is a novelette: longer than a short story but brief enough to read through in one sitting.

'The Mill' was previously published by Pendragon Press as part of the anthology ‘We Fade to Grey’, edited by Gary McMahon.

Meet the Author

Mark West was born in 1969 and lives in Northamptonshire, England with his wife, Alison and their young son Matthew. Writing since the age of eight, he discovered the small press in 1998 and since then has had almost sixty short stories published in various magazines around the world. His first collection, Strange Tales, was published by Rainfall Books in 2003 and they also published his short novel, Conjure, in 2009. His debut novel, In The Rain With The Dead, appeared from Pendragon Press in 2005 and following this — and the birth of his son — he spent two years wrestling with writer’s block. This was broken when his story The Mill, which Mark Morris called ‘one of the most moving pieces of writing I have read in a long time’, appeared in the acclaimed five-author collection We Fade To Grey, edited by Gary McMahon.
