Sleepwalkers cover

    This collection is one any serious lover of short fiction will want on their shelves.
    Peter Tennant, The Third Alternative

In her first collection of short stories, Award Winning author Marion Arnott fashions eleven contemporary slow-burning tales which dig deep into the human psyche, spreading unease and unsettling fears. Fusing crime with passion, hope with despair, Arnott's strong characterisation imbues each story with a poignant realism that transcends cultural and historical boundaries. Whether metaphorically or literally her creations sleepwalk through their nightmares, their dreams, and their lives.
