Not Far From Aviemore

Rated 5.00/5 based on 4 reviews
Ghosthunting has become something of a joke over recent years, thanks to the clowning about of certain TV entertainment programmes. However, there are still those who look to consider serious and robust avenues of investigation, and this original piece of fiction captures that spirit of authenticity. More

About Michael Reuel

Michael Reuel is a folklorist and storyteller who has made it his mission to champion overlooked stories and support their belonging within the public consciousness. Though usually attracted to obscure tales, he was inspired to write about Robin Hood when he came across a now extant Wikipedia entry which began ‘Robin Hood was a medieval outlaw who did not exist’.

This dismissive statement, along with the prominence of popular ‘false myths’, convinced him that he needed to write on the value of England’s cultural and storytelling heritage. His subsequent research resulted in a startlingly different conclusion, which the UK’s most prominent BlogSpot on Robin Hood writings has described as “Surely the platform for all future serious research regarding Robin Hood”.

With a publishing background and journalism experience, Reuel published his first work of fiction in 2012 and continues to develop his own writings alongside ghost-writing projects.

Review by: KatieMelua on June 10, 2014 :
I like a good scary story and detective stories too. This is like a mixture of the two, except it's fun in that the two main characters aren't trying to take themselves as seriously as most detective characters. They don't realise how important their task is until they get very deep into things. Became quite attached to them both and I like that the writer held back as much as he shows.

Review by: Fludge on May 28, 2014 :
Builds wonderfully and you sense the writer's enjoyment of his material, especially the Highland location and the lonely places the characters found themselves. Would have recommended to horror and fantasy fans anyway as an enjoyable read but had to review it for being knocked for 6 come chapter 18. Would have brought bringing science into a ghost story a mistake but Reuel pulls its off. A new top 5 book of mine.

Really enjoyed, both interesting and entertaining. I read Ch15 onwards in 1 day I was so hooked by that point - great when a book draws you in like that.

Review by: H Benstead on May 9, 2014 :
Most original thing I've read in years. Last time I was this interested in ideas on the paranormal and unexplained happenings was back to the first few episodes of the X-Files. A very engaging writer and characters you warm to, as well as plot twists that don't feel forced but you don't see them coming either.
