Judith Mawson (local crank) knows the truth - that Lychford lies on the boundary between two worlds and that the destruction of the border will open wide the gateways to malevolent beings beyond imagination. But if she is to have her voice heard, she's going to need the assistance of some unlikely allies....

Fantasy and reality in a beautiful mix!
A beautiful story made even better by the reading done by Marisa Calin. Highly recommended short story - for me even better literary performance than the regular series Paul Cornell is famous for.

A Timely Fantasy
What did you like most about Witches of Lychford?
A great autumnal listen and a fantasy for our times. The story has blended flavours of Good Omens, The Sugar Queen & a Guardian Column by Owen Jones. A small town on the cross-roads of reality, a diverse trio of strong women including a bereaved Reverend, an elderly witch and a skeptic who was abducted by the fey stand in the way of all life collapsing. If you are not a fan of big business and austerity and do enjoy a good fantasy with a predictable but not too tidy end, I recommend this book.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
It was a story that was easy to listen to in one or two sittings.

Superb story and narration
This Novella is a relatively short listen but is well done in every aspect. The narrator is perfect for the story. If you like a good mystery where the protagonists discover that there is a world beside ours with occasional people crossing over in both directions you will enjoy this tale.

Well done, just wish bks 2 & 3 were on audible
Though this may be fantasy, it is firmly entrenched in reality. Witchcraft, evil, faeries, spells, spirits, and the like may exist, but so do town halls, NIMBY debates, financial downturns, and the press of super stores and their promise of increased jobs and depersonalized service. Of course, here the super store in question would break ground and reroute roads, walls, and barriers that are there for a reason. I loved meeting some of the residents of Lychford, especially the titular witch (singular at the beginning, but plural by the end). The grounding of the fantasy/magic portions of the book in solid rules and the mundane details of village life worked very well. Cornell did a lot in a very brief length. My only complaint is that I wish the book were longer -- but with two more books in the trilogy at least I have something to look forward to.
