Hauling Like A Brooligan

Stephen Gallagher

Out of his Mind – 2004

First collection of short stories, and winner of the British Fantasy Society’s award for collected short fiction. Legendary writer-producer Brian Clemens contributes the introduction

It’s a cliché, I know, but I honestly could not put the book down. Steve has written a stunning array of proper short stories, not the amorphous, all-glittering prose with finally an ambiguous, barely discernible point kind, but rather hard, strong yarns, beautifully structured, finely characterised and filled with not only readable but also speakable, ruthlessly real dialogue calculated to amplify character and advance the plot of each little jewel
