Legend has it that if the ancient clock stops ticking a terrible fate will befall the people of Degringolade, and there's no denying that the super-mundane entities of the tar-pits are behaving strangely.

The overwhelming feeling of this book is the phenomenal (if you'll excuse me) amount of effort that's gone into creating this world. New seasons, new words even a new system of time measurement. It's a compelling world, too, and compellingly dark. It's not afraid of evil and has no shortage of murderers, the ghosts of murderers, torture, and the bad guys getting away with it (at least for now...) It's almost gleefully dystopian and seems to take great joy in the suffering of the characters for our amusement, which makes it a really good find. The Book Bag A treat for those of an inquiring bent The Daily Telegraph
F. E. Higgins travels the lands that her books describe, collecting strange artefacts and the even stranger secrets and stories behind them. The Black Book of Secrets, The Bone Magician, The Eyeball Collector and The Lunatic's Curse document the results of these eerie explorations and have sold all over the world. When not in pursuit of a story, F. E. may be found in a haunted house in Kent.
