The Dark HorseI promised N° 2 sprog that I would read every single book by Marcus Sidgwick if he did and I have to say that this is no great hardship. I have recently finished The Dark Flight Down and The Dark Horse and found both to be impressive pieces of work not least because, as I wrote in a previous post, Sidgwick creates convincing imaginary worlds and peoples them skilfully. I have also recently finished The Foreshadowing. Unlike the others, this story is set in the all-too-real world of the First World War but Sidgwick injects a touch of the paranormal and applies a trademark twist in the tail. All good stuff.
