Fireside Tales

Daniel Owen  Other books by Daniel Owen

Populated by a cast of beautiful women, over-zealous preachers, gullible simpletons and the occasional ghost, Daniel Owen's Fireside Tales appear here in English for the first time. This new collection of nineteen short stories showcases the trademark quick wit and good-natured satire for which the author's novels are admired. Often based on popular urban legends of the period, Fireside Tales is full of fascinating, often funny depictions of nineteenth century life in Wales. This book was intended to be read by the fireside on long Victorian evenings; it is sure to bring a welcome warmth to our modern lives.
