That chill running down your spine — is it just the melting snow?

The thirteen stories in The Snow Cow tell of love and death, terror and joy, mixing ancient myths with modern legends. They are stories to be shared in the firelight after a long day’s skiing.

  • The skier who leaves tracks on inaccessible mountain faces — is he dead or alive?
  • Your chalet girl — could she be a mass murderer?
  • A woman on her wedding night, a promise made to the devil — how can she escape?

Experience impossible love in Not This Time. Ski with a ghost in The Long Man. Discover a new twist to an old legend in The Passport of Dorian Gray. And be haunted by the terrifying tale of The Snow Cow herself!

Skiing will never be the same again.

The Snow Cow will be published on 19 November 2009. This blog will bring you the news as it happens, and, week, by week, it will bring you one of the stories from the collection. Is this kindness? No! It is a devilish plan to get you so addicted that you visit the book’s web site and buy the book for yourself and as presents for your friends. You have been warned.

    Dude … you “stole” my snow cow!

    I’ve made countless references to my beloved nemesis, the Snow Cow, since the mid 90’s, and many of them use the SAME tongue-in-nose image!

    btw: have you ever spent a stint blogging on MySpace? (I’ve since closed the two accounts I had there, but they were some fun times a couple years back!)

      Well, the original story dates from the early 1990s. The image isn’t my idea but something the graphic designer thought up. So it must be a case of Great Minds.

      Have you got the book yet? You should, you know. It’s available from Amazon, for example – and I think you’ll enjoy it.

      How on earth did you find this site? Don’t tell me that you Google “snow cow” at regular intervals – surely?

        Well, actually … LOL … yeah. Although, it depends on how you want to define “regular intervals”, but I DO make annual visits to the InterWeb to update my image collection for the on-going tales of Snow Cow. I have several with the tongue buried deep in the nostril that appear quite regularly, although not recently.

        I’ve been hinting at a return of the Snow Cow in one of my blogs lately and am about to re-introduce “him” to an audience that’s mostly comprised of newer readers.
