Belljars is Simon's third short story collection.
Discover eight new stories where everyday people encounter gods, ghosts and gorillas in worlds where magic and monsters are found both outside and within.
A traumatised survivor returns to his childhood home to remember the night he found a mysterious chess piece under his pillow. A young girl seeks the advice of the gods to overcome a school bully. A sluggish underachiever tries to win back his successful ex-girlfriend by hitting the gym, but his dubious protein shakes have a monstrous effect on his mind and body.
Belljars also features a new novella set within the world of Simon’s fantasy novel The Sheriff, in which an impossible black dragon is drawn to the idyllic settlement of Summertown in search of vengeance.
Belljars is available for Kindle, Kobo, Apple devices and in paperback. Read more about Simon's first short story collection Breadcrumbs and second collection Boomsticks.
