Last night I finished off the last of the stories for the next Thaumatology anthology, Tales from the Dubh Linn. So I thought I would share them with you. I’m not sure how I’ll order them yet, but this is what you’ll be getting:
A Night on the Town: Four friends on a night out in London end up visiting the Dubh Linn, a notorious pub in London frequented by the darker side of supernatural society.
After Twilight: A teenager with a taste for vampire romance story finds herself falling in love with a teenage vampire who has just started at her school. Will the course of vampire romance run true?
Changeling: A farmer in Wales becomes convinced that his wife has been replaced by a fae changeling.
Hunt: A young couple spend Halloween night in a tent in Windsor Great Park while overhead they can hear a sound like geese calling. They are in for a very wild night.
Succubus: When Wendy discovers that her husband has been cheating on her, she summons a succubus for revenge and gets more than she bargained for.
The Body Trade: When a reporter begins investigating human trafficking into London she enters a far more dangerous world than she could ever have been imagined.
For those who have previously read the series, these are largely standalone stories, but you will be seeing some characters who have turned up before. John Radcliffe and Kate Middleshaw turn up more than once, and we’ll even be seeing Hughes and Croft, the Welsh detectives from Disturbia. You’ll also become better acquainted with Belvedere, the decadent Sidhe from the same book, and there is one more, secret, guest star from the main series.
As a side note, when Hammer of Witches comes out, it will have a bonus short story along with it. Housemates tells the story of how Ceri and Lily first met.
