Example text

The only attraction to detain tourists was the legend of a werewolf on the Margeride – the Bête de Gevaudan; that, and the Cham des Bondons itself. And the ancient standing stones, that comprised the Cham des Bondons, were truly extraordinary, dozens of grey monoliths, standing alone and apart, on every cliff and promontory, like frozen warriors frowning down in judgement: at the dark pineforests of the Cevennes. Yet even the stones were deserted. Untouristed. Neglected. And now only the winds remained, the winds and the wild horses, feeding on the feather-grass.

So, my grandmother was an anthropologist, ah, we know she disappeared around that time, and we know there were rumours she came here. ’ Chemda’s words were like a litany, softly and reverently repetitive, a whispered prayer in the gloaming of a church.
