A gruseomely funny series for fans of Roald Dahl and Lemony Snicket.
Meet Marius Myerdorf, the newest recruit of Schwartzgarten's most secret of societies.
His is a tale of adventure and abduction, friendship and fearlessness, as The Band of Blood race against time to unmask two of the foulest fiends in the history of the Great City.
The deeds are DASTARDLY.
The twists are TERRIFYING.
And happy endings are NOT always guaranteed.
If you prefer CLEAVERS to KITTENS and FIENDS to FAIRIES...
...then welcome to the gruesomely funny Tales from Schwartzgarten.
Christopher William Hill was born in Truro, in Cornwall - a little jaundiced, but that was to be expected in the grim days of the 1970s. His mother was a former nurse, so Christopher grew up with a copy of Black's Medical Dictionary to hand, which was ideal reading matter for an enthusiastic hypochondriac. He liked acting and putting on silly voices, and collecting ancient relics which he gathered in a large walk-in wardrobe that called his 'museum'. Christopher loves walking, ocean liners, airships, Victoriana and cake shops.
