    About Author

    1. Rebecca Lloyd says:
      For the most part I write short stories, and while many of them were first published in literary journals, in 2014, I had two collections of my stories published at the same time, Mercy with Tartarus Press, which is a beautifully made hardback book, and The View from Endless Street, a paperback published by WiDo.Some of my stories could be described as psychological horror and others as magic realism, and from time to time I write about ghostly things What interests me most is the inventive ways we deal with what life throws at us, and the ability many of us have to slip easily between our invented worlds and the shared world, as if travelling back and forth down a long worn path.

      Ah, the quality Apart from all its other many virtues, what stands out for me in this collection is the sheer quality of the writing Too often these days, books shout out at the reader, demanding to be read, throwing their usually temporary and unpolished charms in our faces But with Lloyd s writing, you have to enter its world, which is one full of subtle, powerful imagery, human sorrow, natural eccentricity and memorable scenes.Each of these stories is not just well crafted, but unique not wi [...]

    4. Amanda Sington-Williams says:
      Rebecca Lloyd is a very talented writer and The View from the Endless Street demonstrates this Each short story is beautifully written and evokes the ordinariness of life in all its extraordinariness If I had to pick a favourite it would be The Oil Drum There were echoes and ovals of light that slid and widened, and broke up into ragged shapes and long fragments almost at the moment they formed To write a collection of short stories in which each one deserves applause is a difficult task but Llo [...]

      If you like short stories then you are in for a treat Lloyd writes with sensitivity and compassion, even while her stories are sinister Her characters are desperate and haunting Her language is rich, textured and nuanced.Some examples of her beautiful writing The moon was hanging in the skyke a moist, red grape he d a funny hatched face as if he had fallen asleep on a candlewick bedspread e water was dark, all its facets sombre, slate grey and rippling And as I watched the beautiful serenity of [...]
