Legionnaire C.E. Ward
Wrap Dust-Jacket & Signature Page Art by Paul Lowe.
A gost story for the dark winter nights!
The Legion of the Damned... for Armand Lucette and his weary comrades the unrelenting torture of the baking sun by day and the dark, uncaring bone-chilling cold of the desert nights are terrible enough ... but the horrors they experience at Seni-Bebrou, and on their flight through the unforgiving Sahara, become a terror almost beyond words. And who (if any) will survive to tell the tale(?) ... More terribly, what might then be their ultimate fate?
C.E. (Clive) WARD is the author of three Sarob Press ghost story collections (with a fourth currently being written) ... Vengeful Ghosts (1998), Seven Ghosts and One Other (2010) and Malevolent Visitants (2016). Each of these collections sold out very quickly and are now almost impossible to find ... and, when they do appear for sale, command very high prices. Clive describes LEGIONNAIRE as ... “my first attempt at writing that most tricky of compositions, the ghost story novella ...” and what an ‘attempt’. The publisher was blown away. But, then, Clive is one of their very favourite authors. The author also says (in his introduction) ... “LEGIONNAIRE is a story about the French Foreign Legion. It is, of course, also a story about ghosts. It attempts a most unlikely pairing and melange of the contemporary writers Montague Rhodes James and Percival Christopher Wren”. So, a fabulously dark and ghostly novella, introduced by the author and with absolutely brilliant dust jacket and signature page art by PAUL LOWE.
