A boyhood mishap in York. A ghostly walking tour of Leicester. A deadly snowstorm on the moors above Middleham. Alien abduction in the very heart of the city of London. Loss of a beloved brother, death of an untrue cousin. Just some of the events recounted in these tales by authors inspired by King Richard III. Much-maligned since his death, the real man has often been lost in the shadow of the scheming villain of Shakespeare's famous play. Following the rediscovery of his centuries-lost grave in 2012, many people have come to question this evil reputation, and King Richard's supporters (known as Ricardians) are seizing the chance to bring his real history to a wider audience. The authors collected here have all, in their different ways, sought to cast a light on that story. Elegiac, mystical, brutal, light-hearted, uplifting. Will you find your new favourite author within the pages of this anthology? Sold in support of Scoliosis Association UK (SAUK) with a Foreword by Philippa Gregory (author of 'The White Queen') and edited by Alex Marchant. With contributions from: Narrelle M.
