Charles Walter Stansby Williams (1886-1945) wrote seven mystical/supernatural novels between 1930 (War in Heaven) and 1945 (All Hallows Eve). He was also a poet and theological writer, and a member of The Inklings, the Oxford-based group of literary titans that included, amongst others, J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. In this all new shared volume, John Howard and Mark Valentine pay affectionate tribute to Williams writings with a long novella, ''The Dance of Gold'' by John Howard and two novelettes, ''Kraken Tide'' and ''Seek for the Pomegranate'' by Mark Valentine . Both authors have also provided illuminating afterwords to their stories. In ''The Dance of Gold'' the rector of a rural parish discovers the secret of a legendary coin and the enormous responsibilities of becoming, even temporarily, its guardian: in ''Kraken Tide'' a vast storm flooding the Lincolnshire coast coincides with the activities of a mysterious black magician and, possibly, the secrets of the Templars: and in ''Seek for the Pomegranate'' an unusual and weird Roman talisman leads two young scholars into a mystical adventure and the Orphic Mysteries. With cover art and title page illustration by Paul Lowe. LIMITED EDITION: 300 numbered hardcover copies printed.
