“When the sun goes down on my life, you’ll all come apart like ripped balloons.” When stingy self-made millionaire and widower Leon Farrell dies, he leaves behind a legacy of family dysfunction—and a missing will. It’s soon clear that his three grown children, Edgar, Gunther, and Shirley, don’t handle loss well—the possible loss of a fortune, that is. And when Edgar hires a private investigator to track down the will, it’s just the beginning of a search that will lead the siblings to re-visit their childhoods, uncover buried secrets, and ultimately learn for themselves what it means to be a family… Praise for the Novels of Gwynne Forster “Wise and wonderful as it points out, once again, the importance of honesty and appreciating what you have while you have it.” —Publishers Weekly on A Different Kind of Blues

Mitch arrives on the small Mediterranean island of Gozo, taking a holiday to escape from domestic and sexual trouble at home. He’s been invited by Bob Southern, a fellow doctor now working at the army garrison at Valetta, who wants to consult Mitch on ‘a delicate matter’. Bob is concerned by the apparent suicide of a young lance corporal, Ned Southern, who plunged to his death from Gozo’s cliffs. The authorities said he was being blackmailed, but Ned’s grief-stricken lover Alf insists that he was murdered. Suspecting an official cover-up of a queer scandal, Mitch gets to work on an investigation that leads him into a labyrinth of lies, false identities and secret sex. As another body is washed up on the rocks, a gallery of suspects begins to form. Claire Sutherland, the ageing stage star who knows all the gossip on the island; Henry Jessop, the beautiful youth who may not be as innocent as he looks; Joseph Vella, a ladies’ man with a deadly secret; Major Telford, whose ‘artistic’ photographs of the island men may tell a more sinister story… With tension, humour and plenty of Mitch Mitchell’s exuberant sexual encounters, The Sun Goes Down cranks up the Mediterranean heat!

The Inner Hebridean island of Breágha has long been considered one of the most beautiful parts of the British Isles but now its natural beauty has become of secondary importance to the people who live there.Is it just coincidence that the most devastating storm in the region's history completely cuts the island off from the rest of the world whilst masking the changes that are taking place there?The opening of a new shop, managed by the good and kind Francine Duval, brings much more than just a mysterious sign above its windows.Each evening, with the setting of the sun, the island becomes a very strange and sinister place.
One of the worst scenarios while on holiday is to be told you have to stay in hospital. You may have had a heart attack or worse a severe stroke. Holiday makers hardly ever heed the obvious signs. Situations arise that are difficult to get through, going from extremely distressing to plain straight funny. If you or a friend has had an accident whilst on holiday you will know a bit about the ordeal and upset you go through. Possibly it could have so easily been avoided. The role of a hospital interpreter involves being a go between with the insurance. Not to mention a hand holder and counsellor. The message is loud and clear" make sure you have a good insurance". Holiday makers in high spirits have difficulty proving to the police that they are "only having a bit of fun" So many cases could have had a tragic ending. Until you find yourself involved in such a situation you cannot imagine the distress. Months of planning and anticipation can be destroyed in moments and you could find yourself "watching the sun go down and the drip go up".

his landmark volume marked the first U.S. publication of British horror phenomenon, Tim Lebbon. As the Sun Goes Down collected 90,000 words of his best work, including several original pieces, like "The Unfortunate," which went on to win a Bram Stoker award, and was included in several "Year's Best" anthologies. As the Sun Goes Down also features an introduction by Ramsey Campbell. This collection presents a tableau of stories each very distinct in content and form, yet inextricably linked in disturbing the reader and challenging their accepted values. Not one tale is wasted in Lebbon's determination to subvert our perceptions of love, life, nature, beauty and the innocence of childhood. His use of language and narrative form is unrelenting, each vying to create images from words that incessantly chip away at our confidence in the so-called 'truths' of existence. In addition to winning the British Fantasy award, and the Bram Stoker Award, Lebbon managed, with this collection, to completely disgust a reviewer at Publishers Weekly, who went out of his or her way to trash As The Sun Goes Down... "Unpleasant people doing disgusting things is a theme that bludgeons its way through this collection of 16 horror stories... If only the nightmares and unpleasantries created by this collection would ... fade ... away." Other critics have had nicer things to say about Tim Lebbon, and As the Sun Goes down: ..".the darker moments of life are central to Lebbon's work. Few writers can plumb the depths of these moments with his sensitivity and unflinching frankness." - SF Site "Lebbon is quite simply the most exciting new name in horror for years." - SFX Magazine "Lebbon is the real thing. He's going to be Major - Steve Rasnic Tem .."A firm and confident style, with elements of early Clive Barker." - Phil Rickman, author of The Chalice "Lebbon never disappoints. His consistently first-rate stories crackle with invention and surprises galore." - Simon Clark, author of Nailed by the Heart and Darkness Demands Contents: * Introduction by Ramsey Campbell * The Empty Room * Life Within * The Butterfly * Endangered Species in C Minor * Dust * Fell Swoop * Recent Wounds * The Repulsion * Unto Us * The Last Good Times * King of the Dead * Recipe for Disaster * The Beach * Reconstructing Amy * The Unfortunate * Bomber's Moon
