Summary

When Sirona Cary aids the minute Tun the Cobbler and then his sovereign, Lorcan, the king of the elves, she is drawn into a web of ever-increasing peril from human and more-than-human minions of the dark evil threatening humanity’s Realm of Time. A mercy mission to release a human ghost from the sentence holding him earthbound brings a double attack that compels her to seek temporary sanctuary in Lorcan’s own kingdom. 
Before she can return to her own place once more, Lorcan receives the long-dreaded command that his people and their allies must withdraw immediately from the earth, thereby compelling the Dark Ones to depart as well. Should even one of his folk remain, the Realm of Time and all living there will be destroyed. 
Lorcan realizes their enemies will strive with their full might and power to prevent the evacuation. He, Sirona, Tun, and the ghost race to spread the warning to their peoples’ scattered communities, that and guard the most threatened populations against the massed assaults certain to be thrown against them. Even as they strive, they know their hope of achieving total success is slim and that anything less will render all their efforts futile.

    Interview with the Author: 
     
    So what makes this short story collection so special? 
    William Meikle: Samurai and other stories contains a real cross section of what I'm all about as a writer. There's fantasy, swordplay, supernatural beasts, sword and sorcery, ghosts, horror, history, humor and a lot of particularly Scottish characters in weird situations. It's also got some of what I think of as my strongest work, whether its in the quieter ghost stories, or the blood and thunder sword swinging. I'm very proud of it as a collection, and Crystal Lake have done a wonderful job in the packaging, especially in the brilliant Ben Baldwin cover that captures the title story perfectly. 
     
    Tell us more about your title story. 
    William Meikle: Samurai is a cautionary tale of being careful what you wish for. A group of shipwrecked sailors find shelter in an ancient abandoned Japanese temple. They proceed to sack it of its treasures - but find, to their cost, that the temple has a guardian, and that service comes with a stiff price. It's a fantasy fable, with more Scots in trouble, more swordplay, and a splash of red gore in the green jungle. It runs in my head like a movie, and in fact, I think it would make a great one, if somebody has the cash for it. 
     
    Why should readers give Samurai and Other Stories a try? 
    William Meikle: It's packed with entertainment, at least I think so. My ethos as a writer is that story comes first, and I like to think that shows in this collection, whether it be in tales of adventure, or misadventure, spooky goings on in coal mines, strange musicians, poltergeists, magial relics, or the people that nobody expects. A wee bit of something for everybody. 
     
    Do you have other books featuring these some of the characters in this book? 
    William Meikle: The main recurring character is Derek Adams, the Midnight Eye, a Glasgow P.I. who keeps getting sucked into supernatural cases. He's in three novels, THE AMULET, THE SIRENS and THE SKIN GAME that are available in ebook, paperback and audiobook,  and he's in a handful of short stories now too. I'm sure he'll be in several more in years to come.

    Never make a deal with a Faerie. You won't make it out alive.  
    Of all the races in this world, the most treacherous is the Faerie. They claim to never lie, and yet when it comes to deceit and trickery, they are at the top of their game. An old proverb says never make a deal with a dragon. I have never met a dragon, but I would trust its word more than I would trust that of a Fae. 
    And yet I foolishly signed a contract with one. Silly me.
