Curl up in bed with a warm cuppa one night and start reading. The tea might help keep away the chills Kennett's stories will cause, but I doubt it ... Marty Young, Australian Specfic In Focus Kennett weaves a beguiling atmosphere through that holds the attention unerringly until the culmination of the tale. He has a knack for environment and ambience that he brings to bear with each and every story. Peter Worthy, Black Books ezine Two bush walkers hear a rain-sodden forest speak at midnight in The Dark and What it Said. M.R. James is revisited in Anningley Hall, Early Morning and Dolls for Ather Day. The mine-sweeper Barringji, a latter day Mary Celeste, drifts out of a storm that killed three other ships. In Chinese Whispers a parlour game goes horribly wrong. Mr. Lewisham sees Hell through a keyhole. Ernie Pine is a ghost-hunter who hates being a ghost-hunter.
