This is a collection of modern, nightside fairy tales. These unsettling stories are inspired by the weird fiction tradition of horror writers like Algernon Blackwood, H.P. Lovecraft, Thomas Ligotti and Laird Barron, but with pre-teen to adult readers in mind. Set in a familiar, but unspecified time, in a familiar, but unspecified place, these stories tell the adventures of two childhood friends, Clara and Payton, as they uncover the reality of terrible, alternative dimensions, while wandering through the dark landscape of our own. These stories are a tribute to childhood. And they celebrate-above all-the Autumn season: rustling leaves, warped shadows and Halloween.

There once was a witch who lived a broom cupboard. She was a wicked witch, and very grumpy too, as you might be if you had to live in a broom cupboard. To be precise, she was the sort of witch would use her magic to make you her prisoner for ever and ever. In fact, that's exactly what she threatened to do to Uncle Pierre, and if it wasn't for his friend Bashir, along with his magic fish and translating mouse, she would have succeeded! Elsewhere in this collection a giant loses his socks, a doll looks into the future and a potato falls in love with a sultan. In these tales, clever young people find nifty ways to overcome wicked witches, outwit their parents and save their friends. And there's a big dash of magic to help them on the way!

James Hogg wrote some of his best stories in The Shepherd's Calendar, in which he defines the content and the manners of the traditional storytelling of Ettrick Forest, the mountainous region in Scotland where he grew up. They reveal Hogg's experiences as a young shepherd as it draws a picture of the pleasures and the dangers of the lives in Scottish Highlands. Some of these stories deal with the supernatural and explore psychological depths with a noteworthy intensity and insight. Large parts of these tales are written in a Scots dialect from the region of Ettrick Forest. The Shepherd's Calendar: Rob Dodds Mr Adamson of Laverhope The Prodigal Son The School of Misfortune George Dobson's Expedition to Hell The Souters of Selkirk The Laird of Cassway Tibby Hyslop's Dream Mary Burnet The Brownie of the Black Haggs The Laird of Wineholm Window Wat's Courtship A Strange Secret The Marvellous Doctor The Witches of Traquair Sheep Prayers Odd Characters Nancy Chisholm Snow-Storms The Shepherd's Dog The Expedition to Hell The Mysterious Bride The Wool-Gatherer The Hunt of Eildon James Hogg (1770-1835) was a Scottish poet, novelist and essayist who wrote in both Scots and English. As a young man he worked as a shepherd and farmhand, and was largely self-educated through reading. He was a friend of many of the great writers of his day, including Sir Walter Scott, of whom he later wrote an unauthorized biography.
