Weathervane Press is delighted to announce this collection of short stories from Megan Taylor (The Dawning & The Lives of Ghosts) entitled The Woman Under the Ground, to be published October 20th.

Powerful and beautifully observed, ‘The Woman Under the Ground’ is novelist Megan Taylor’s first collection of short stories. The writing is brooding and mysterious with finely drawn characters, so often the victims of absence and loss: a child taken to a neglected museum by her forsaken father; a woman revisiting the scene of an ended affair; a couple taking a road trip to try to reconcile the death of their daughter…

From dark adult secrets to night visitors to the dangerous passions of small girls, these stories explore fractured relationships and moments of self revelation with an uncanny honesty and insight.

Each story is introduced with an enchanting illustration by artist Nikki Pinder, who also designed the fabulous cover. Nikki designed the cover for Megan’s first novel, How We Were Lost (Flame Books) –¬†www.nikkipinder.co.uk

The launch will take place at Five Leaves Bookshop, Nottingham on Thursday November 13th at 7pm. More details to follow shortly.
