Description

Shuckland takes us on a journey exploring the weird wonders of the Waveney valley.  Behind the ruined castles, soaring church towers and attractive market towns lie ancient legends and folklore. Ghost of avenging kings, highwaymen, headless queens, ancient buried treasures, demonic entities, notorious villains, treacherous barons, murderous earls, ley-lines, paganism, yew-shrouded churchyards, old ivy-covered houses, witchcraft, strange fearsome beasts – including the notorious Black Shuck who gives his name to Shuckland.

The Waveney valley is full of history. Along with the ruined castles, soaring church towers and attractive market towns there are many legends and much folklore – some ancient, some relatively modern – as to give the place an air of intriguing weirdness.

Old traditions, ghosts of avenging kings, highwaymen, headless queens, ancient buried treasures, demonic entities, notorious villains, treacherous barons, murderous earls, ley-lines, paganism, yew-shrouded churchyards, old ivy-covered houses, witchcraft, strange fearsome beasts – including the notorious Black Shuck who gives his name to Shuckland – frequently involve incidents linked to the landscape.

Charles Christian is an English barrister and Reuters correspondent turned writer, award-winning tech journalist, and podcaster with a soft spot for history. He was born a ‘chime child’ with a caul so, according to legend, cannot drown at sea but can see and talk to ghosts and fairy folk without fear of coming to harm – superpowers he didn’t need to employ while writing this book.  Find out more about Charles and listen to his podcasts at https://www.urbanfantasist.com/
