Review this Book

Lights in a Western Sky


Lights in a Western Sky is a collection of twenty short stories encompassing a wide variety of genres, settings and historical periods. With themes ranging from romance to horror, and with settings in the most exotic of locations, the tales contain twists and turns and plenty of unexpected denouements.  

This collection of short stories have human tribulation as a common theme. They include a sentimental love story, a tale of lost opportunity in the pursuit of a mythical beast in Africa, an account of an autistic boy’s tragic attempt to do good as he sees it, a simple ghost story, an act of terrorism in which an innocent party becomes implicated, and others that touch upon the supernatural and horror. Also included within Lights in a Western Sky is a trilogy of stories offering thought-provoking interpretations of some of the events surrounding the demise and crucifixion of the biblical Jesus. 

Inspired by Roald Dahl’s employment of terminal twists, this book will appeal to readers of short stories. It will also be enjoyed by fans of Roger’s previous literary works.

At the time of writing publication is still three weeks ahead.

This is a collection of short stories, it has everything you could possibly want. I enjoyed it a lot.

I was born in Sussex but spent most of my childhood in west London. After graduation I worked in Africa, in the pharmaceutical industry, in scientific research and, most recently, in government service. Murchison's Fragment - a collection of nineteen short plays, including three for radio - was written after my retirement and is my first book of fiction.
