A graveyard in the
Outer Hebrides. The leafy suburbs of Oxford. The Black Cuillin ridge. A strange
museum in Iceland. A Manx fairy glen. A deserted Scottish isle. A Welsh
woodland mansion. A haunted cottage on Skye. A pagan site on the Wirral
Peninsula. A forbidden estate on Mull. These are the settings for excursions into
the uncanny. They are largely inspired by real places where the author has felt
a nuance of, in that inimitable German word, the Unheimlich. A fabulous new collection of ten tales (six
previously unpublished*) from the author of A Certain Slant of
Light and Phantasms(both Sarob Press) and Strange Epiphanies(The Swan River
Press) is sure to hit the right note with aficionados of the supernatural tale.
And the previously published “The Executioner”, “The Island” & “Sithean” have been
substantially re-written for this volume.

THE WHITE ROAD has been reviewed at David Longhorn’s excellent Supernatural Tales blog ... visit http://suptales.blogspot.fr/2017/12/the-white-road-review.html to check out what he has to say about this one.
Des Lewis has also reviewed the book at https://dflewisreviews.wordpress.com/2017/12/16/the-white-road-ron-weighell/
Sarob Press friend Boyd White has asked me to mention the following which may be of some interest:
In the recently published 20th anniversary edition of “The White Road”, Ron Weighell mentions the limited fine press edition of “The Four Strengths of Shadow” that was published by Chad Oness’ Sutton Hoo Press under the Alpenhouse Apparitions imprint. Although sheets for 100 copies were printed, only 50 copies were actually bound, 22 of which were available for sale. Genre specialist John Knott acquired a number of copies, and Ron signed each copy. Copies of this book are currently available directly from John Knott at his website. For further details visit www.jwkbooks.com/pages/books/20244/ron-weighell/the-four-strengths-of-shadow
I’m aiming to announce our next title in the next week or so.
