Tarantella and Other Strange Stories
A collection of 15 stories, each one with an unusual flavour, conveying its message in a slightly off-beat way. In 'Eternal Youth' a woman seeks a solution to her fear of ageing, but the terrible conclusion is unexpected. Set in Italy, 'Tarantella' describes how a young woman finds inner peace in a bizarre way. How do a middle-aged couple on a holiday to recapture the bliss of their first honeymoon find their lives renewed by ending up isolated by a hurricane? Reading these stories, you are transported into a world with a different quality, so that by the time you have finished, you will see things with different eyes. The author's aim is to entertain while at the same time making you think and reconsider your views about the things that are most important to our lives in a complex, often baffling world.

About Peter Foreman
Peter Foreman was born and educated in London, and trained as a teacher of English to overseas students. He worked in Spain and Italy before writing fictional material (Readers) for students. His books were published by an educational publisher in Rapallo, now incorporated in De Agostini. Oxford University Press has published his story as a single book 'The Mystery of Allegra'. His first novel 'Pisuktuk the Wanderer' was followed by 'Aurelie', set in the Channel islands during the Nazi Occupation. Both books are available on Amazon. At present he is working on a new novel based on the discovery of two Greek bronzes in Calabria. Living in Wiltshire in England, his interests are reading, walking, travelling, films, and writing. The odd and the supernatural have always attracted him, which, combined with an intense curiosity about the meaning of human life and our ultimate destiny, give his stories their unusual edge.
