From the recent past, to sometime in the distant future – from the possible, to the highly improbable, Walking in Darkness is a collection of thirteen short stories with characters trying their best to overcome life’s little problems.
Meet bounty-hunter Donald MacKenzie getting more than he bargained for; resourceful young Nigel living by the book; the lithophiliac Fischer, determined at all costs to find an alien life-form; and the unfortunate Howard, whose personal memory bank has gone missing. Join these and the others as they wrestle with the cards that Fate has dealt them – for better or for worse.

About the Author
C J Dacre began writing both fiction and non-fiction under a variety of names in the mid-1980s after many years working for several different local authorities. Originally from Carlisle, Dacre’s formal education and career progression were both frequently punctuated by family moves around the UK which ultimately provided a rich source of background material on which to draw as an author. Brought up on a diet of second-hand Argosy magazines, Dan Dare and repeats of Journey into Space, Dacre has taken a break from writing the full-length family sagas A Necessary Fiction and A Plain and Simple Truth under the name of Jane Emerssen to put together what might be described as Dacre’s Dozen – this miscellany of previously published and unpublished short stories with their roots firmly embedded in the fertile soil of the imagination.
