Publisher's Summary

Traveler, cleric, witch. The villagers in the sleepy hamlet of Lychford are divided. A supermarket wants to build a major branch on their border. Some welcome the employment opportunities while some object to the modernization of the local environment.
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.
