A Raft of Dreams

By Geoff Ward

Short stories, Poetry, Paranormal, Literary fiction | Paperback


Life-changing encounters – a woman escaping from a miserable existence finds her whole world transformed when a Navajo artisan befriends her in the Arizona desert… a reclusive writer enters a new reality after a character he thought existed only in a classic novel arrives on his doorstep… a woman visiting the ruin of her family home on the west coast of Ireland finds the spell of midsummer unlocks a secret of her childhood… a travelling musician following his muse across the country is inspired by a chance meeting with the archetypal hobo in a California railyard… Set in Ireland, America and England, Geoff Ward's stories walk between worlds of magic, mystery and myth, while his finely crafted metaphysical poems, speaking often of love, passion, longing and redemption, reflect our precarious but privileged place in the universe.
