FLAME & OTHER ENIGMATIC TALES by Maynard & Sims. Wales, UK/Neuilly-le-Vendin, France; Sarob Press; 2012. 1st edition hardcover.
Six darkly enigmatic and chilling stories make up Maynard Sims fourth Sarob Press collection – their first since Falling Into Heaven (2004). Here you will find two novellas – the sequel to their well-received novella “Moths” (see Echoes of Darkness) and a spooky tale of life and death – and what comes after – set in and around the variety theatre of the 1950s. Plus four shorter but no less haunting tales – one of which is a new “Dept 18” adventure. Five of the six stories are original to this collection and the sixth has been fully revised.
Len Maynard & Mick Sims are the authors of the novels Shelter, Demon Eyes, Black Cathedral and Night Souls and the Sarob Press collections Shadows At Midnight (1999), Echoes of Darkness (2000) and Falling Into Heaven (2004).
Stories: “Double Act”, “Serenity”, “Jealousy”, “Assignment”, “Fallen” & “Flame”.
