If you're new to the works of Tom Slemen - Liverpool's most popular author - and don't know where to start, may I recommend A Tom Slemen Selection to whet your appetite? Listen to the story about the mystical vagrant who foretold a Liverpool schoolboy that he would one day become the most famous person in the world - and this prophecy did indeed come to pass. And listen to the story about such strange and perplexing beings as the Seven Whistlers, whose eerie music foretells a tragedy; Waterloo's chilling Man in Black, who tried to persuade a child to commit a suicide because he was a lonely ghost who yearned company; the gruesome "Devil Dolls" of the Dingle; a cabbie's terrifying experience in West Derby; the creepy stalker who was a master of disguise; the bizarre life-cycles of reported vampires; the Headless Horseman of Whiston; the weird history of Spring-Heeled Jack; Renshaw Street's enigmatic and violent top-hatted ghosts; plus many more uncanny tales of Liverpool and beyond. A Tom Slemen Selection is an excellent introduction to the writings of the man who singlehandedly put Liverpool on the paranormal map and established a cult following in the process.
