Obsession and Other Stories by Chris Longmuir is a dark and thought-provoking collection of short stories that touch on the seamier side of life.

Amazon review


Obsession & Other Stories is a collection of scary, dark, and gritty crime stories as well as a couple of gentler ones to soothe the nerves.
There are no zombies, werewolves or vampires in these stories, although I can't guarantee you won't come across any skeletons, when you walk on the dark side with me. Come along with me and I will introduce you to some scary people and after you've been in their minds and shared their thoughts, you'll be glad of the light relief at the end.

‘Obsession' - is a dark story about a stalker, and not recommended for those of a nervous disposition. This was the story which gave birth to the Night Watcher and is the precursor of the novel.

‘In Zofia's Footsteps' - is the story of migrant fruit pickers working on a fruit farm in Scotland. Make up your own mind whether or not there is a hint of the paranormal in this one.

‘Not a Bad Person' - is a gritty story which introduces Baz, a heroin addict and what he feels compelled to do to acquire money to feed his habit.

‘Ghost of Christmas Past' - is a gentle ghost story which is not in the least scary, although I'm better known for my scary stories.

‘Sin' - is a tale of the Magdalene Laundries, the institutions for unmarried mothers which were infamous in Ireland in the not too distant past.

‘Santa's Little Helper' - a little bit of nonsense to finish off with.

Read and enjoy.
