At last, The Complete Lychford! All five volumes of Paul Cornell's popular Witches of Lychford series, together for the first time!
Traveler, Cleric, Witch.
Witches of Lychford
The villagers in the sleepy hamlet of Lychford are divided. A supermarket wants to build a major branch on their border. Some welcome the employment opportunities, while some object to the modernization of the local environment.
Judith Mawson (local crank) knows the truth that Lychford lies on the boundary between two worlds, and that the destruction of the border will open wide the gateways to malevolent beings beyond imagination.
But if she is to have her voice heard, she's going to need the assistance of some very unlikely allies...
The Lost Child of Lychford
It's December in the English village of Lychford - the first Christmas since an evil conglomerate tried to force open the borders between our world and . . . another.
Which means it's Lizzie's first Christmas as Reverend of St. Martin's. Which means more stress, more expectation, more scrutiny by the congregation. Which means . . . well, business as usual, really.
Until the apparition of a small boy finds its way to Lizzie in the church. Is he a ghost? A vision? Something else? Whatever the truth, our trio of witches (they don't approve of "coven") are about to face their toughest battle, yet!
A Long Day in Lychford
It's a period of turmoil in Britain, with the country's politicians electing to remove the UK from the European Union, despite ever-increasing evidence that the public no longer supports it. And the small town of Lychford is suffering.
But what can three rural witches do to guard against the unknown? And why are unwary hikers being led over the magical borders by their smartphones' mapping software? And is the immigration question really important enough to kill for?
The Lights Go Out in Lychford
The borders of Lychford are crumbling. Other realities threaten to seep into the otherwise quiet village, and the resident wise woman is struggling to remain wise. The local magic shop owner and the local priest are having troubles of their own.
And a mysterious stranger is on hand to offer a solution to everyone's problems. No cost, no strings (she says).
But as everyone knows, free wishes from strangers rarely come without a price . . .
Last Stand in Lychford
There are changes in the air, both in Lychford and in the land of fairy.
The magical protections previously employed by the town are gone, and the forces of darkness are closing in both figuratively and literally.
Can Autumn and Lizzie save their community, and, well, the world?
Exploding fairies, the architect of the universe and a celestial bureaucratic blunder make this a satisfying conclusion to the ever-popular Witches of Lychford series.
