IN DARK PLACES
2018 (National Trust Books)
‘There were once people who walked lightly. Who heard, in the space between their footsteps, reverberations and echoes of the fissures and caverns that lay below. Otherworlds and underworlds. Places that spoke to them.’
In Dark Places by Wyl Menmuir is the launch title for a series of pocket-size fiction, inspired by the history and environment of National Trust places.
In this darkly atmospheric story, a young couple on their honeymoon set out to explore Cheddar Gorge, only to find themselves increasingly distanced from one another as the presence of the claustrophobic caves closes in around them…
In 2018, In Dark Places was reprinted in Salt Publishing’s anthology, Best British Short Stories 2018 and online in The Barcelona Review.
