We are currently working on the following projects:
STARSHIP SEASONS: By Eric Brown
FORGOTTEN THINGS: By Stephen Mullaney-Westwood - NEARING COMPLETION
A spiritual coming of age tale mixing the haunting faery lore of Cornwall, pagan values and a deep love for the natural world.
‘Forgotten Things’ is a novel of nature in contrast; sinister, beautiful, wise and innocent. With an otherworldly twist it explores the importance of influences; of growing up, whilst still looking backwards.
We see through the eyes of one man recounting the bitter sweet memories and adventures of his childhood. His love for the woods… his draw to them… but also his fear.
Similar to a classic ghost story the ‘horror’ is subtle and unnerving, while the ‘fantasy’ is simply a glimpse into another reality.
The little people are our antagonists, spoken of in whispers and presented in their true form; age old beings which transpose boundaries- taken seriously and sitting in mysterious juxtaposition with the secular world.
BETWEEN THE REALMS: By Cheryl Straffon - NEARING COMPLETION
In this exploration of the Cornish Celtic Otherworld, Cheryl Straffon expertly guides us through a realm of traditional tales, stories, myths, legends and folklore wherein we encounter supernatural beings, such as fairies, piskeys, mermaids, witches, giants and other strange creatures. Between the Realms examines the writings of the folklorist collectors, and oral traditions born from the prehistoric sacred landscape of Cornwall. Cheryl explains how, in this material, we find themes and narratives strikingly similar to those encountered within much earlier works that refer to beliefs and events that were current in the ancient past. In turn we find that Celtic sagas and mythic tales seem to exhibit the same way of interfacing with the world of magic and spirit as seen in the beliefs and practices of many native indigenous peoples from around the world.
Circle of Spears are once again joining with Troy Books (publishers of Traditional Witchcraft currently available on our store) to release this folklore title on CD
THE YOUNG DEMON KEEPER: By Bob Simms - NEARING COMPLETION
A darkly humorous fantasy novel set in modern-day London.
When Paul summoned a slave demon to do his every bidding, he thought it would be really cool. Instead, he got Scarth, a hybrid that was as magical as a damp sponge but not as intelligent. His only talents seem to be invisibility and to eat: toasters, gravel, furniture, but especially ice-cream. Oh, and people.
Featuring demons, trendy priests, garrulous occult bookshop owners, muggers, publicans, evangelists, porters, witches, and wizards.
Oh, and then there's the really strange characters.
This title will be available in CD and audio download versions. E-book available via Amazon
