Clamour and Mischief Narrelle M Harris

About CDP’s latest anthology: <em>Clamour and Mischief</em>

By Narrelle M Harris I fell for corvids the way Hazel Grace Lancaster falls for Augustus Waters in John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars: “I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.” Or perhaps it’s more appropriate to go with that line’s more ominous inspiration, when, in Ernest Hemingway’s The Sun Also Rises, a character explains how you go bankrupt: “Gradually, then suddenly.” When it comes to corvids – crows, ravens, jackdaws, magpies and jays – the bright and dark go together.

Book Peek: <em>Kitty & Cadaver</em> by Narrelle M Harris

A sneak book peek into Clan Destine Press' Kitty & Cadaver by Narrelle M Harris. Laszlo Kantor didn’t tell the five patrolling musicians that he thought they were preposterous, because he’d learned long ago to keep these opinions to himself, especially from preposterous people.The oddest at the moment was the Swede, Kurt, who had a tablet computer in one hand, open on an app that displayed a keyboard. He played it as he sang into the quiet buildings of this area of light industry.  Water, fire, air and earth  Let no evil cross this line  Weave a web, protect this...

CLAN DESTINE PRESSThe Only One in the World – a Sherlock Holmes Anthology “Well, I have a trade of my own. I suppose I am the only one in the world. I’m a consulting detective, if you can understand what that is.” ~ Sherlock Holmes to Dr John Watson, A Study in Scarlet What if Sherlock Holmes was Polish? What if he and/or John Watson were Indian or Irish or Australian or Japanese?
