Reviews

'This is a great collection of seasonal stories just right to be popped into a Christmas stocking. Recommended.'

- Mystery People

Praise for Syd Moore:

Strange Magic is that rarest of things: a book which sets out unashamedly to entertain, and does so with wit, style, and erudition. I gleefully submitted to a tale of witchcraft, feminism, mysterious strangers, historical atrocities, plucky heroines and ghastly apparitions - and came away more proud than ever to be an Essex girl.' Sarah Perry, author of The Essex Serpent and Melmoth

'A fun and thrilling read, one hugely impressive element is that Moore uses her light tone and intricate character relationships to address some serious points - ranging from people trafficking through to the derogatory stereotype of the Essex Girl. Lead character Rosie Strange is a woman to be admired with her ballsy, no-nonsense attitude, excellent boots and compelling family history. I can't wait to see more of Rosie, Sam and the Essex Witch museum in the future.' Cathi Unsworth, author of Weirdo

‘Dennis Wheatley meets Caitlin Moran.' Starburst

'The Strange novels are a breath of fresh air for fans of supernatural mysteries...all fantastic books...I can't recommend them highly enough' Paranormal Underground
