Frank Welsh

First Blood

There are thirteen chilling tales of the supernatural in this work; all set in the north country where for many centuries lawless fugitives hid, Celts and Druids were abroad, and Vikings raided and settled. There is a human sacrifice swinging from a tree, whilst a ghost from someone left hanging now haunts, and spirits emanating from a cathedral tomb go about their business with evil intent. And then there is the unexplained and bloody deaths that occur on Lindisfarne, whilst echoes of ‘old unhappy far-off things’ come through to mystify those living in the present. Frank Welsh has shown himself to be a master of the genre with this volume – a far cry from the scholarly works for which he is better known – and the reader will find sufficient in the stories to convince them they have experienced true horror at first hand.
