Where Seagulls Dare and other tales from Herm Island

Where Seagulls Dare and other tales from Herm Island

Author(s): Paul Sherman

Location(s): Guernsey, Herm

Genre(s): Short Stories

Era(s): Mostly the present, with one set in WW2

The tiny Channel Island of Herm measures one and a half miles long by half a mile wide. This book comprises twelve short stories drawing on the island’s history, myths and legends – each evocative of an island location.

This eclectic mix of tales includes a ghost story, an adventure story, a humorous story, a horror story, a war story and much more. It’s best to read them in the locations they are set, but a chair by a warm fireside will do.
