As chapbooks are so short (typically 8 - 18 pages), to give a storyline would spoil the thrill of this spine-tingling tale!
Laconic, understated and shocking. The atmosphere is powerful and the turning point utterly unexpected. A very chilling story from a true and original talent.
In the short story there is never room for padding, but what makes the excellent short story writer stand out from the merely competent is an ability to make every word and every image contribute to the span of the story without being obtrusive or self-conscious. Christopher Burns most certainly does this in The Numbers.
Praise for The Numbers and Jackdaws by Neil Campbell…
But it can be said that both stories illustrate Nightjar Press’s ethos: short stories beautifully told, which unsettle the reader with accumulating, unnerving detail. Each story is exactly as long as it needs to be and lingers in the mind long after reading.
Nightjar Press (an independent publisher specialising in limited edition, single short-story chapbooks) issued this signed and numbered limited edition.
Each book is signed on a page that confirms its handwritten number. Printed on this page are the words, ‘This is copy number...... of a signed limited edition of 200 copies.’
