Ashe of Rings, and Other Writings
The author called Ashe of rings, her first published novel, a "War-Fairy-Tale," as it deals with the Badbury Rings, "a set of prehistoric concentric earthworks in south Dorset," those who are sympathetic to this landscape and those who are antagonistic to it. In Imaginary letters, the author writes to the mother of her lover, Boris, a Russian emigré. Traps for unbelievers and Warning to hikers are companion pieces, "addressing the need for preserving the land and retaining or restoring some sort of spiritual consciousness." Ghosties and ghoulies is the author's study of ghost fiction. -- Preface, p. x-xiii.
