Welcome to our first blog post here at grimlydarkwood.com This is where you will find all the latest news about Grimly’s ‘Vale of Strange’ series. We can start by announcing that the first book in the series, ‘The Shop on Peculiar Hill’, will be officially released tomorrow, 1st December, though we know that some of you received your print version copies today!

In case you hadn’t heard, ‘The Shop on Peculiar Hill’ tells the story of how Peter comes to live with his uncle and aunt at the shop on Peculiar Hill and finds himself in a weird place, whose inhabitants go in fear of attack from the fierce creatures which live in the nearby Vale of Strange. He meets a girl who lives on the hill called Amanda and they go on to have an exciting and extraordinary adventure amongst the bogeys; heeble-greebs; and talkative, amusing but ultimately rather annoying lifkins who dwell in the Vale.
If you would like to ‘try before you buy’, there are two sample chapters from the book right here on this website. You can find them here.
You can also find out a bit about the author, Grimly Darkwood, here. This is the brief biography of Grimly which also appears at the end of ‘The Shop on Peculiar Hill’.
The next instalment of the Vale of Strange will be entitled ‘Stranger Days on Peculiar Hill’ and is currently scheduled to appear early in 2019.
