Moss Witch and Other Stories

by Sara Maitland

A ground-breaking collection of short stories evolving through conversations with scientists. Each one is a fusion of narrative and science. I found them a stimulating mix of natural history, geology, physics, medicine and astronomy with contemporary fiction, myth and folklore. The scientists complement each story with a scientific analysis including their reactions to the author's creative interpretations. Will appeal to the curious reader.
