ORDER “THE RADIANT BOY” HERE

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 RADIANT BOY”
  • “CRAWFORD’S CASKET”
  • “THE LAST JOURNEY OF HMS DOVER”
  • “LAST SERVICE”

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” contains four stories, one b/w sketch, 10 colour drawings by the wonderful Amandine de Villeneuve and “Author’s Notes for the Curious”.

Oh, and a book curse. That one is included for free…
