Über den Autor
As penance for past deeds, Edmund Glasby grew up in Morecambe and studied Egyptian Archaeology at University College London and Archaeology and Anthropology at Oxford... Morecambe, which has more than its share of the strange and unsavoury, provided him with a better education. After turning his back on academia, he now writes in the genres of dark fantasy and supernatural thriller, having been brought up on horror; his father was John S. Glasby the prolific supernatural writer.
In 2010, his first novel was Disciple of a Dark God, a far-ranging dark fantasy epic. His first collection of all-new supernatural stories, The Dyrsgol Horror and Others was published by Borgo in 20013, and was followed by The Ash Murders, The Chaos of Chung-Fu, Ghouls of the Undercity, Labyrinth of the Lost, Dark Shadows and a novel, Weird Shadows Over Morecambe. For his UK publishers, Ulverscroft, he has also written three detective thrillers, A Murder Most Macabre, and The Postbox Murders, and The Doppelganger Deaths (forthcoming). His latest supernatural collection, Death After Death, was specially compiled for Shadow Publishing
When he is not writing he is the captain of a local archery club and he has won a trophy or two both at local and European level with the English longbow he made.
According to eyewitnesses, the victim was sitting on a park bench and talking loudly in a foreign language when he suddenly got to his feet and started flailing his arms around. Then his head fell off and the rest of his body became a human torch. By the time the police arrive, all that remains is a pile of smoldering ashes, along with an unscathed severed head. For Detective Inspector John Dryer, the unexplained death represents one of the toughest cases of his career. Was the man murdered, or the victim of some horrible accident? Other stories in this collection of supernatural mysteries include: "Souls of the Frozen," "Calling All Weaklings!", "Pale Lilac," and "Volume XIII." Great reading by the author of THE DYRYSGOL HORROR.
