“THE RADIANT BOY”

Four Ghost Stories from the Age of Sail

Written by Emma Collingwood
Illustrations by Amandine de Villeneuve
Edited by Timothy T. Tarbottom
ISBN: 978-3842336759

At the annual meeting of the “Young Bucks Club”, four officers serving in the Royal Navy during the Age of Sail share ghostly naval tales.The second book in Emma Collingwood’s and Amandine de Villeneuve’s “Penny, Dreadful and Tarbottom”-series, “The Radiant Boy” is an eerie and touching tribute to the classic English ghost story and the Royal Navy.

  • “THE RADIANT BOY”
  • “CRAWFORD’S CASKET”
  • “THE LAST JOURNEY OF HMS DOVER”
  • “LAST SERVICE” (a tribute to Admiral Cuthbert Collingwood)

The book contains four stories, one b/w sketch and 10 colour drawings by the wonderful Amandine de Villeneuve, “Author’s Notes for the Curious” plus a book curse. The latter is included for free.

Amazon provides a preview, so if you’d like “trial read” and have a look at some of the illustrations, please click the picture below:

If you don’t want to wait for the book to become available through the official website (which will be in about two to three weeks), you can place your order on Amazon even if you don’t live in Germany.

“But I don’t speak German!” Don’t worry – Google can help!

ENGLISH TRANSLATION OF AMAZON PAGE

“The Radiant Boy” has 100 pages and costs EUR 9.90 (about £ 8.40 / $ 13.00). I’m aware that this is a high price (due to small edition and colour pages), and ordering through the official website will be more expensive, as Amazon offers cheaper shipping. So ordering through Amazon will save you money.

I’m very happy with the final product; Amandine de Villeneuve’s illustrations are absolutely delightful, and I don’t think I’ve done too bad on the writing front, either (if I may say so).

Happy buying, happy reading!

      Yes, I have. Probably not all of them, but the “classics”.
