The Ferry of Souls by A. L. Salmon

Hardcover – Tartarus Press – 2022 – 262 pages

The Ferry of Souls (1927) is a strange and beguiling book: the title story drifts over the reader like a fever dream. A new apprentice is shown the ropes by an ageing ferryman, and the ghostly crossing he foretells leads the lad to think the old man is losing his mind. Events soon prove the old man’s wisdom should not have been dismissed so lightly. ‘The Were-Wolf’ is a more explicit horror tale, and others are poetic and beautifully composed.
