TWO ORPHANED SISTERS face the full horror of a wartime air-raid in the title piece of this collection of over thirty short stories. Elsewhere: a young executive wakes up after the office party to find himself in bed with a total stranger... A blood-stained naked woman causes panic in a Dorset tea room...A pickpocket finds himself in a quandary over a winning lottery ticket...A man who doesn't believe in ghosts meets his match in a country cottage... unusual things happen at funerals, dogs talk, and love blossoms in the most unexpected places.

Designed by the author to be read out loud to an audience, but equally suited to the armchair reader, the short stories in this anthology are wide-ranging in their appeal. They journey from the romantic to the dramatic via the hilarious and the downright creepy. Pick up this book and you instantly relax in the hands of a master story-teller: whatever your taste in reading you are guaranteed to find much to savour within its pages.

Bob Bishop's forty years' experience of writing for the stage is reflected in the vivid characterizations, the neat plots and the witty dialogue which lifts this anthology way above the ordinary. Also included are short plays and a small collection of performance poems.

Shadows on the Blind can fairly be described as an entertainment for all seasons.
