The Ghost Who Bled


The Ghost Who Bled & other stories will be published by Comma Press in April 2015.


The Ghost Who Bled is an excitingly diverse collection of stories. Ranging from black comedy to poignant drama, it takes the reader around the world and through time.

The sufferings of a tyrant’s body double and the life after death of a failed suicide are two of the book’s (seemingly) fabulous conceits. Other stories take in politics and intrigue in post-9/11 America, the apocalyptic visions of a Byzantine hermit, the aftermath of the Cambodian killing fields, and a scrivener in Elizabethan London witnessing the conspiracy against Christopher Marlowe. The end story acknowledges the gap between violence as entertainment and its terrible consequences in reality.

The Ghost Who Bled is a book of great variety: a celebration of the freedoms of fiction. Its stories have won awards, appeared in national journals and magazines, and been broadcast on BBC Radio 4.
