Journeys in the Dead Season

by Spencer Jordan

A prisoner on remand and a shellshock victim of the First World War - two stories juxtapose to create a metaphysically haunting and deeply compelling story. An engrossing read which isn't always easy and at times is rather disturbing but I like a book that makes me think.


So little natural light falls into my cell, and I have such a limited view from my window, that at times I feel as though I am entombed within a coffin .... Down here, deep within the soil, I must content myself with mental excursions only, tripping beneath the canopies of forests that exist solely in the mind.
