From Belfast, Northern Ireland, Jim Murdoch faced a paradigm shift which gave him a new world view. He views everything and everyone being connected. A path of self development studies followed where he delved into many subjects including metaphysics and, yes, dragons. With his wife, Katharina, he co-authored their self-help story Wings of Change. This got him thinking about writing fiction instead of boring self-help books. Taking inspiration from The Alchemist and The Celestine Prophecies he waited for the inspiration. 'Pursuit' is the result. Jim lives with his wife in Switzerland.

Get ready for a long helter-skelter ride in an alternative world where young Peter encounters many strange and curious characters. He meets mice, elves, monsters in the sir, in the water and on land. There is much magic going on and Peter is soon entrusted on a mission which seems impossible and even doomed to fail. It all begins with a mysterious box with odd contents including a key, and a tall clock which is the doorway to the mystical kingdom.
This is definitely an adult tale with enough gore, blood and death to make the reader cringe. It is indeed "A darkened fairytale". It isn't my cup of tea and I struggled to complete it. But fans of mystical lands, elves and monsters, where every thing turns chaotic and the hero is lost in the confusion, will love this book.
Suspense, surprise, surreal, shocking, sinister, subtle, heart-pounding, side-glancing, door-checking, spine-shivers. These are words and reactions which best describe this collection of uncanny short stories. Each author has delved deep into their psyche, raising scenes and unwrapping fears which are best left be. Read at your peril. A delightful read on a darkened night with only your cat as company.
To comment on the other stories which are not mine, these are a collection of humorous, unusual, paranormal, romantic, frightening short stories which will have you laughing, crying, sighing, and looking for more. I commend my fellow authors for their great work, creativity and collaboration in putting this book together. The top prize goes to Peter John who started it all and without his much work in the background we would not have gotten this far so soon. Thanks too to our creative cover designer Gedi Phillips.
