Stuff I've written...
"Arthur the Witch by Donna Scott, a stylishly-told glimpse into the mindset of an earlier century by an incisive modern eye,navigates similarly murderous and occult reaches of the local spectrum, givinga meaty humanity to the burned-flesh barbecue pall of witch lore that still persists across the county."
"The writers represented in Shoes, Ships &Cadavers: Tales from North Londonshire have crafted visions of the town that are distinct and separate, covering a generous and sweeping arc of this tinyand yet deceptively expansive area of spacetime… I read this in a single sitting, something that I can't remember managing with an anthology for a considerable while. I don't expect to read a book this year that is more personally satisfying or a greater cause for optimism. Passionately recommended."
Alan Moore, from his introduction.
Donna Scott provides a convincing story set in the daysof witch mania with Arthur the Witch. The style is authentic and intense, thedescription and raw emotion of the piece completely engaging.
