Good morning from a cold but beautifully sunny and bright blue sky day here at Château Spectrale. Today, we are going to tell you about the latest ‘episode’ in the ongoing eBook monthly serial from Spectral, Black Mountain by Simon Bestwick. The cover artwork, by the inestimable Neil Williams, is shown above. Continuing the chronicling of the strange events around Lake Bala in North Wales, the third in the series, The Strange Death of Britt Nordenstam, looks at what happens when an archaeology professor takes student volunteers on a dig at the remains of a medieval village around the lake’s shores, and one of their number goes mysteriously missing, vanishing completely without trace. The woman is just one of a line of people to do so over the years. The events will have tragic repercussions that go well beyond the fate of the woman in question, the Britt Nordenstam of the title, setting in motion a chain of events that will deeply change a number of people’s lives forever.
Jut what is going on in North Wales – and how many more victims will it claim?
Black Mountain 3: The Strange Death of Britt Nordenstam will be available on Amazon by the end of the week. Additionally, the opening chapter, Black Mountain 1: The Red Key, will also be made available, as is Black Mountain 2: The Ghosts of Hafan Deg.
