David Towsey is a graduate of the Bath Spa Creative Writing Masters programme. He is a lecturer in Creative Writing at Aberystwyth University, where he lives with his girlfriend and their four cats.

Thomas is thirty-two. He comes from the small town of Barkley. He has a wife there, Sarah, and a child, Mary; good solid names from the Good Book. And he is on his way home from the war, where he has been serving as a conscripted soldier. Thomas is also dead – he is one of the Walkin’. And Barkley does not suffer the wicked to live.
Haunting, elegiac, evocative and human. A beautifully crafted debut. - Christopher Brookmyre
