Hob Tales

Book One

The Hob and the Deerman

The Hob and Deerman


Crowfield Abbey is a place of ghosts and shadows, secrets and lost souls.

When Brother Walter the hob returns to the abbey, it is not as he remembered it. Old friends are long gone, and even the wall paintings and stone carvings are disappearing, one by one. The empty rooms and cloister are haunted by the evil spirit of a crawling man and a ghostly girl waits in vain for her long dead father to come for her.

Who is the mysterious Deerman, and why does it come to the abbey in the dead hours of the night?

And why does the old Cold Fair still appear on the village green each year?

The hob has old wrongs to put right and mysteries to untangle, but time is running out and the crawling man is coming for him…
