    About Author

    1. Rebecca Lloyd Marc Beattie 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.

      All four stories in this beautifully bound collection, which is a pleasure just to hold and read, are dark and secretive My favourite story by far was Fetch It had moments of twisted humour which made me laugh and cringe, and the descriptions of the characters were so detailed I felt that if I bumped into them in the street I d know them right away.

      Absolute perfection Must try to put my reactions to words and write a proper review later, but Rebecca Lloyd is a writer not to be missed.
