LSAD Lecturer Releases Book Entitled ‘New Music for Old Rituals’

BLACK SHUCK BOOKS - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - PRE-ORDERS NOW OPEN FOR - NEW MUSIC FOR OLD RITUALS - BY TRACY FAHEYOld_Rituals.jpg

Black Shuck Books is proud to announce Tracy Fahey’s second short story collection. New Music for Old Rituals draws on childhood memories and Irish folk tales to spin nineteen stories of life, love and loss. Illustrated throughout with Tracy's own photographs, this beautiful book will go down as one of the must-read genre collections of 2018.


New Music for Old Rituals brings together a selection of stories that illustrate the pervasive power of the past in the present. Together they present a strange yet familiar country where cautionary tales still serve a purpose; where sacred sites of sea, forest, valley and forts hold power. Where old legends live, and where new myths are born. Within these pages, bog bodies sleep, ancient rituals are enacted, and battles are fought. Ghosts linger, and time stutters, fails and turns back on itself.


New Music for Old Rituals will be released in November 2018.

“To be sure, there were slow conversations that would stop when you walked outside the church, or opened the door to the pub or the bookies. But we didn’t discuss it. Not publicly. The closer you got to the woods, the quieter the story got, until under the trees, all voices fell silent.


So much for the ending. How it began was a different matter.”
