There is a girl in the River, a beautiful girl, she has long brown hair that curls like River weed. She has dark eyes, that glow with the colours of the River, she is sinuous as the eddy’s and currents that make the River live and Rob has been looking for her his whole life. She is the girl in the River and he is the one that watches her. He wishes to find out about her, he wishes to know her, his River girl, he wants to understand her and perhaps even love her but the River Girl will try to tame him before the end. (This is the new novel by Raymond Walker, a work of romance but obsession and madness as Rob glimpses something new in the river that house lies above; a girl. It could be simply his imagination or his loneliness causing him to see the girl but he thinks it is not. He thinks her real and sets out to find her, to know what she is, to know her. It is his goal, his need, his obsession and he searches for her for years and one day, he finds her) “The River Girls Torment” is a work of true beauty, thoughtful, clever, quirky and full of earthy magic. I love This. Rob Anderson, author of “Elizabeth”  An absolute Delight from Raymond Walker, clever, current and topical, never mind the beautiful romance, this has so much more to offer than boy meets girl. Aldrich Kenney, author of “When East meets West” and “The leaves in Poland”

A wondrous tale of the dark woods of Scotland. A holiday trip gone wrong, a perfect holiday ripped apart by nature. A young girl left alone in the depths of the forest is found by a Hiker that cares. He resolves to look after her and to get her to the Hospital that she needs to attend. He will do anything to get her there and see that she is alright. They are a long way from salvation and the medicine that home promises. They are in the dark woods of Northern Argyll where only, woodsmen, nature buffs and walkers exist. There are no roads, no cars, few tractors other than those working the land. There is only Rob, the man that loves walking in the forests, and the poor girl that he has found wrapped in the brambles of an abandoned building. Hurt, Abused, perhaps raped, Rob makes it his mission to save her but they are out in the wilds of Scotland. They are a long way from help, a long way from salvation. Rob is going to save her. Rob is going to save her no matter what it takes.

What can I say that has not been said about this book ?  It is clever and concise, unlike anything that you have ever read before or are likely to again. Margery Banks. Poetry Monthly.

A new novel Recently released

I stared awestruck and humbled by the Kraken before me that consumed the long shingle beach with a carnivores veracity, with patches of golden sand and small rocks that tumbled and fell with each passing movement of the giants teeth, devouring the beach with every surge of its hide and teeth, pulling rocks back into its hungry maw, shells, small fish, crabs and all manner of sea creatures scrabbling to pull themselves away from this all-consuming monster that has no thought or sense but devours all that lies in its way with no cunning, no mind, yet with a strange kind of avarice, wishing all to be part of it, to be consumed by it. In this way a man's doom was sealed and he faced his fate with acceptance, hopefulness and even with a thought of deliverance. The man will meet his own daemons, his own fears and will either be drawn into them or rise above them

This most unusual of Ghost Stories was enchanting , tragic and rather strange. Romantic and horrible, thought provoking and beautiful all at the same time. I do not think that I will ever forget this book.

Martha Humbles. The Literary Review.

Here I intend to add off shoot's, alternative scenarios, short stories associated with this Trilogy of books. I will talk about the area in which it is set and the motivations for the book and will include small snippets taken from a all three volumes when I am able.

But there will be a couple of differences. I intend to add pictures here to illustrate the book in a rather unorthodox way.  Perhaps even a video or slideshow or two to add color to it. Luckier than most other authors I own my production company and publishing house and so do not have to worry so much about copyright infringement as others.
I hope that you enjoy the results.




Pre-publication reviews for "Over the Tears of the Fallen"

I remember thinking, "Dead Sailors brought back to life by a dying god,  Fishermen lost at sea on a dark and stormy night.  People lost at sea, the dead, the bereft, children lost at sea, dead fishermen brought back to into the light"  was a step too far, even for someone like Raymond Walker, who writes the "difficult to read" at times. Then I started reading and could not stop.  This is a fantasy tale or a horror tale or a romance, all three or none, who can tell. It is a different thing than anything I have read before.

A marvelous read and destined to become a classic.

Robert Anderson.  Author of "From the Top" and "Lost Hope".

Stephen King's "Duma Key"  or "Black House" (with Peter Straub) blew your fantasy/horror mind.  Think again.  Raymond Walker, rips apart the classic fantasy/horror tale and redefines it in this dark and bloody trilogy.  Dead sailors crawl, white and bloated  from the sea to battle with an ancient god and his disciples.  Can even the hardest of humanity, dead or alive, contend with a god? 

Marcie Smith. "New Worlds" Magazine.   

Original, new, different, a species just discovered, no hint of Tolkien, Bradbury or Heinlein, something grown from a primordial mind creating  a fantasy that is not only embryonic  fascinating, easily readable and surprising but completely indivisibly, original.  I cannot wait for the second volume. 

Marsha MacDonald . "New Fantasy" Magazine.

Top of the  Heap.

I have been reading fantasy books for more years than I care to mention, I met J R R Tolkien once in his later years and he would not have approved of this book.

He was a very mainstream, studied, person while this book is a fantasy of an unusual sort. Dark and dangerous.  The new face of horror fantasy.  I give you Raymond Walker.

A "One"  Night, Read" 

I picked this book up, one of my "Reads of the Month" for May 2018. I started reading as I pulled the covers over myself hoping for an early night. Five in the morning, sleepless, I was nearly finished. This is a book that when you start reading you cannot stop. Ready to sleep for the past five hours I often lifted my glasses, rubbing my eyes, exhausted, I could not wait to find out what happened next.

If The writer can keep up the idea and style of the tale into the next books then we have a bestseller. I have already pre-ordered the second book.  This is a great read.

Brian Percy.  The Guardian.

A Monstrous Tale.

The scene set, the wind howling, the darkness palpable and the dead crawling from the sea on the first page. Shipwrecks, the resurrected, old god's returning to life, I finished the book at seven in the morning and my first thought was "How long do I have to wait for the next one? 

I am not sure that I will be able to sleep until I read it.

Five Stars.
