Something Borrowed

by Paul Magrs

The tone is set for occult antics on the seafront with Brenda, the long-lived bride of Frankenstein, now the landlady of a B&B in Whitby. Expect a light-hearted combination of gothic horror and situation comedy as together with her cantankerous friend, they protect the resort from supernatural menace. Full of irreverent one-liners, if you can suspend belief you’ll be rewarded with a wacky and entertaining read.


And what if my disguise ever fell away? What if people saw through all the fragile bits of my human alias? Some night when I thought I was blending in, and mixing with the everyday mass of people … what if all the wigs and the outfits and the skilfully applied make-ups simply dropped off? What if they could see through my feeble attempts to remain inconspicuous? And they saw me as a freak. A beast. A creature to be hounded out of town.
Well. It’s happened before, hasn’t it?
