An unashamed love story. A romance that spans the ages. Rob and Ann married young, all did in their day and as so many others had to, they made a life together wither they wished to or not. Each grew to love the other during the many long years they spent as one, bonding so deeply, enmeshing, each there for the other despite their faults, that when one dies the spouse cannot live without the other. Yet live they must, spending each hollow day thinking of the one now gone. Dedicating the rest of their lives to the memory of the one who has passed over to the other side. But there is Faerie magic in play here in the Highlands of Scotland and perhaps Rob and Ann may one day be together again.

Hiding From the Light; A master of the dark tale is let loose upon this strange conglomeration of fantastical tales. Ancient gods; worshiped still, gain life again. Moonchildren creep from their quiet holts and have stories to tell.
Dark tales of the crypt and witchery abound, amid sad tales of loss and hope forlorn. Add to this a couple of humorous tales and some dark fantasy, this is a treat you will have rarely experienced. I cried, laughed, grew excited, wept and dreamed of these tales, over and over. Few authors have the command of emotion that Raymond shows. Magda Asif, The Spectator.

A beast is hunting the snow-covered winter lands of Kilmartin, a dark shape seen, blood spatters, prints in the snow but no one has been harmed. So far. A writer has been growing more enamored of the faerie tales that he has been writing and is beginning to believe them while his friend just wishes to get out of the house and go fishing but with the strange ancient creature out there will they be safe?
Zeus sits on a rock on Mars but still decides our destiny, witches play games with our lives, a Moon-child scents change in the River-land's and the old gods rumble under the sod of Argyll. A dark Kilmartin Mystery. Another tale of the "Moonchild" who has become a firm favorite with readers. An outrageously funny tale of the first Mars landing, then there is the dark mystery of a "medium" telling the fortune of a real witch.

Hold on to your hat. Lorrie Dylan. “The Machine”

Whosoever wakened it or one of their choice shall take its place beneath the wet sod of the Argyll hills.
Rob is too busy enjoying his new home. He worries about the novel that he needs to write, the money he needs to earn and the new love that he has found. Threats from shades, shadows or wraiths are not something he takes seriously.
But he should.
Raymond walker again jumps genres with ease creating a very current ghost story with a rather Faustian feel. A romance that will leave you spellbound whilst darkness falls and shadows haunt ancient Scotland, Its standing stones cairns and sepulchers.
Rob thinks about love and life and money and never worries about the scratching at the door, the howling in the night and the very strange dreams he has been having.
But he should.
I stared awestruck and humbled by the Kraken before me that consumed the long shingle beach with a carnivores veracity, patches of golden sand and small rocks that tumbled and fell with each passing movement of the giants teeth, devouring the beach with every surge of its hide and mouth, pulling rocks back into its hungry maw, shells, small fish, crabs and all manner of sea creatures scrabbling to pull themselves away from this all-consuming monster that has no thought or sense but devours all that lies in its way with no cunning, no mind, yet with a strange kind of avarice, wishing all to be part of it, to be consumed by it.
In this way a man's doom was sealed and he faced his fate with acceptance, hopefulness and even with a thought of deliverance. The man will meet his own daemons, his own fears and will either be drawn into them or rise above them.
