ALL US WITCHES by Matt Leyshon with Geraldine Monk, Rhys Hughes, & Jordan Krall


16th century Lancashire was a wild and lawless region. It was here that 10 people were found guilty of witchcraft. Mostly women, mostly poor, disabled, disfigured, superstitious and uneducated. They were easy targets for a show of power from the authorities; collateral damage for careerists and social climbers. In All Us Witches, the witches push back.

All Us Witches uses art, photography, poetry and prose to explore the lives of the Lancashire witches in the context of the social injustices that continue to permeate through our society today: the obscene wealth and privileges of the few, the everyday struggles of the masses, and the continued persecution of the most vulnerable.

Allus Cold

Allus Cold is currently being real-time reviewed by Des Lewis at nullimmortalis:

I will not keep mentioning how well-written this book is, and I am already confident enough to say that you should in future take that fact as read as you follow my review into the future.

An extremely well-written quality short story good enough to deck the selected stories volume of a William Trevor or a Somerset Maugham or a Graham Greene or a DH Lawrence or an Alasdair Gray or an O Henry.‘
