A Tiding of Magpies

A Tiding Of Magpies by Peter Sutton

Shorlisted for Best Collection and the British Fantasy Awards 2017

A collection of stories inspired by the “counting Magpies” song.

One for sorrow,

Two for luck; (or mirth)

Three for a wedding,

Four for death; (or birth)

Five for silver,

Six for gold;

Seven for a secret,

Never to be told;

Eight for heaven,

Nine for hell

And ten for the devil’s own self

“Pete Sutton has a talent for the fantastic.” – Paul Cornell (Shadow Police series, This Damned Band, Doctor Who, Elementary)

“…there is a sweet and subtle music to Sutton’s stories. They take you to strange places.” – Mike Carey (Lucifer, The Unwritten, The Girl with all the Gifts, Fellside)

“As if Raymond Carver turned his hand to writing science fiction.” – David Gullen (Clarke Award judge)

Due to KGHH going out of business this book is now available in a new edition published by Grimbold Books.
