SHORT STORIES

Types of Everlasting Rest

Types of Everlasting Rest is collection of short stories, many of them award winners. From Italy’s volcanoes to the Russian steppe, to the fate of Boy Scouts in Czechoslovakia during the Second World War, these short stories are filled with intriguing historical backgrounds, and the fascination of the macabre.

Laden with sumptuous detail, each story leads the reader directly into the compelling and sometimes bizarre inner worlds of her fascinating characters.

"Powerful stuff ... the mood is dark, occasionally shot through with flashes of lightning .. worth savouring. Clio Gray is an uncommonly interesting writer. One wonders, expectantly, what she will do next."
