A creeping shadow, a bump in the night, a thing in the trees -- these are but a few of the surprises lurking in the pages of The Cobbler of Ridingham, the eighth volume in author Jeffrey E. Barlough's acclaimed Western Lights series of fantasy-mystery novels. The new work relates a curious adventure that befell Richard Hathaway (Bertram of Butter Cross, Ebenezer Crackernut) while visiting at Haigh Hall, the home of a family acquaintance, Lady Martindale, on the marshes outside the quaint old town of Ridingham. What is the curse that hangs over the Martindales? What secrets preoccupy certain members of the household? What is it that her ladyship's father, old Sam Gander, has seen in the evening sky while pacing the battlements? Above all, what is the sinister shadow that has returned to the Hall, and whose appearances portend the coming doom of a Martindale? Author Jeffrey Barlough is a master of atmosphere, scholarly detail, and convincing background, and his work is marked by an exceptional craftsmanship. The Cobbler of Ridingham will be a welcome treat for all Barlough admirers, fantasy and mystery fans, and just about every reader who loves a well-spun yarn, and certainly will add to the growing enthusiasm for this talented storyteller.

Review:

There's nothing out there on the shelves like Jeffrey Barlough's Western Lights novels. --Black Gate

Dark goings-on in landscapes and townships both familiar and strange; delightful, light humor mixed with terror so dark and strong it barely admits to existence. Barlough is utterly unique and priceless. The books are as well. --The Agony Column

A true wordsmith craftsman of fantasy adventure at its very best. Enthusiastically recommended. --Midwest Book Review
