THE “PENNY, DREADFUL & TARBOTTOM”-SERIES
Short-stories in the style of 19th century “Penny Dreadfuls”.
They cost more than a penny and aren’t dreadful, though.
“THE RADIANT BOY”
Four Ghost Stories from the Age of Sail
At the annual meeting of the “Young Bucks Club”, four officers serving in the Royal Navy during the Age of Sail share ghostly naval tales:
“The Radiant Boy”
“The Last Journey of HMS Dover“
The second book in Emma Collingwood’s and Amandine de Villeneuve’s “Penny, Dreadful and Tarbottom”-series, “The Radiant Boy” is an eerie and touching tribute to the classic English ghost story and the Royal Navy.

“LIEUTENANT SAMUEL BLACKWOOD (deceased)”
A Georgian Royal Navy Ghost Story

HMS Privet has the reputation of being a cursed ship: every first lieutenant serving aboard her dies gruesomely. Lieutenant Daniel Leigh is determined to solve the mystery and volunteers for the place himself, putting his life in desperate danger. Little does he suspect that he will fall in love with the captain, John Meadows, and end up fighting not only for his own life but for the soul of his lover too.
A Georgian ghost story featuring a cursed ship, a vengeful ghost, a haunted captain and a very daring lieutenant.

“I DO!” ANTHOLOGY
“Semi-detached” by Emma Collingwood
“The working class has arrived,” Sebastian announced, “looking cranky as usual, but he bought beer. Good man.” Upon noticing Thomas’ black eye and split lip, Sebastian arched an eyebrow.
“The proletariat’s been struggling. What happened, mate?”
Featuring characters from “The Purser, the Surgeon, the Captain and his Lieutenant” (to be published in 2012).
Two people of legal age who are in love with each other have the right to get married if they wish to do so, period. As far as I’m concerned, any person and organisation who fights love in this world full of hate is a danger to the public.
The following authors have donated stories to the “I DO!” anthology in support of Lambda Legal Fund, which will receive all profits from the anthology. Printing and distribution costs have been kindly donated by MLR Press.
