Dark Ghosts Rising follows the ancient tradition of the Celtic storytellers, moving the Short Story to new heights. This is a sampler of dark and thought-provoking trips through modern life and other worlds. Here the ordinariness of Sergio Burns' characters are juxtaposed with extraordinary events, as the mundane of everyday existence collides with the strange and, sometimes, the surreal. In these sixteen stories there is something disturbingly compelling, human and real about the characters and the landscapes they inhabit. These are works of freshness and edginess and emotion, of melancholy and joy, of something new and ground breaking, while retaining a sliver of dark humour and cutting irony. Written with a cosmopolitan touch, an innovative euro-lit style, and an extraordinary grasp of the human condition. Scotland's gifted son, Sergio Burns uses his extraordinary powers of invention, combining his skilful use of innovation, technique and structure to take his readers on a great trip.
