Comments & Further Information

This is a trade paperback edition.  Unread.  The title was originally published as a limited edition in hardback in 2006.  Described as as new only as there is a two-inch long indentation on the front.

SYNOPSIS:  “The ten atmospheric tales which make up The Long Retreating Day are the stuff of things flickering at the edge of experience.

We witness a student quarrel which brings forth its own bitter harvest; ancient gods that live in human nature are denied or worshipped at fearful cost; hubris at its darkest in academic life; malevolence that can linger from the past; and the shadows cast by future events. Sardonic, dramatic, urbane and sinister, these stories are grounded in real landscapes and informed by the strengths and failings of the human spirit.”
