Boo! - Wemyss's Appalling Hobby:
From the Party Guilty of Committing 'Gate of Ivory, Gate of Horn'

Or words to that effect.

We are rejoiced to tell you that the Kindle version of Crafts and Assaults is now available.


The print version shall soon be available at Amazon, and is even now available directly from CS; B&N’s Nook and print versions are in process, and then of course all the other channels with it, Kobo, Apple, the Oyster and Scribd libraries.... Those wishing to access those formats now – epub and mobi and pdf and all sorts – may do so directly at Smashwords.

It’s less than a quid – in fact. £0.77 including VAT – and less than a buck – $0.99 – on Kindle because it’s simply a short, seasonal thing which, as you may elsewhere have seen us say, was written as nearly as possible as a gift for our loyal readers as they – I trust, you – await the imminent and more substantial fare of The Crisis 1914 and of the next Village Tales novel, Evensong. I may add for fans of the latter series that my short, ‘Will the circle be unbroken?’, in Crafts and Assaults, is indeed a Village Tale: after all, if dark deeds are afoot in a wood older than Stonehenge, who better to deal with them than Fr Paddick, Fr Campion, Mgr Folan, a mutinous and sceptical Edmond, and the duke of Taunton at his most peppery?

(Having said which, I have conceded, in our little wager, that, so far as I am concerned, Our Mr Pyle has won the ‘go to bed, to sleep – if you can –, with the lamps on’ palm for the subtle horror of his contribution, ‘The Destruction of Sennacherib’.)

And not to spoil anything, but – for the unchurched amongst you. Bless – the title of the collection is not randomly chosen … on several levels. And comes, of course, from the Litany.

From all evil and mischief; from sin; from the crafts and assaults of the devil; from thy wrath, and from everlasting damnation,
Good Lord, deliver us.
