WESTERMEAD, A COLLECTION OF TALES

(Trade Paperback)

Scott Thomas

$10.00

Synopsis

The rushes rasp in ghost-fed breezes as seed-hungry finches chance the thistleís fangs. The bracken has gone gold and brown, the brambles heavy with plump berries. The days, warm as brewed barley, are etched with frost beneath a rusty moon. Eerie effigies are set about to honor the dead, whom, as the year decays, are wont to roam the countryside.

The ways of old merge with the magical and fantastic in this wondrous world. Experience Westermeadís thaw and awakening season by season, the lush heat of summerís passion and the retreat into winterís desolate embrace. Come celebrate and mourn with the people of Westermead as they make their way through a world steeped both in beauty and dread.

More than just a collection of tales, Westermead brings to life an enchanted country where the supernatural is as natural as the sunrise. Follow the intrepid documentarians, Purdy and Beech, on their hunt for the fearsomeFrost Mare. Learn the secret of the stranger whose life little Melly saved inFour Bronze Sisters. Face The Mask of Black Tears alongside Mullein Wick while he fights for his sisterís release from servitude.

This new mythology is ripe with unique characters, spiced with folkways and mixed throughout with a deep respect for all things natural. Given storytelling this vibrant, it is both easy and thrilling to get lost in Thomasí unique landscape.
