It's no small thing to be cursed - so says David Chambers at the outset of his story and so proves to be the case in this darkly comic horror tale. It's the long hot summer of 1976. Wild fires break out over the Western Moors, the trout streams have dried to a trickle and magic and mischief are afoot. When David is cursed by Aunt Alsey, a wandering crone adept at witchcraft, his shadow morphs into a living, breathing and very much darker version of himself - an entity with a powerful thirst, an appetite for mayhem and a determination to not let David forget the more shameful episodes of his past.

Follow David's adventures into the realms of the supernatural as he embarks on a quest to rid himself of the curse, all the while having to deal with the debauched and increasingly malevolent antics of his shadow (as well as the dodgy fuel system on a borrowed Reliant Robin). Propelled into the deadly orbits of fellow victims of Aunt Alsey's various and sinister curses and with monsters to fight, David has his work cut out. What a daft time to fall in love!

"A thoroughly enjoyable read, this humorous tale of horror and suspense had me chuckling more than once. The Lark Mirror is a deftly-plotted, well-written story that provides a winning mix of adventure and comedy, madness and mayhem with a splash or two of sex thrown in. With good quality writing and fast-paced action aplenty, the narrative keeps the reader turning the pages with genuine interest and anticipation as it builds to a dramatic and hilarious conclusion."
