Collected Short Stories Mountains and Other Ghosts and At the Rising of the Moon*
* Winner of the Boardman / Tasker Literary Award 1994
Mountains and Other Ghosts (B/T shortlisted 1990) and At the Rising of the Moon (B/T winner 1994) in one volume. Stories with Alpine, Himalayan and Irish themes. Romance, politics, climbing action, religion and farce are all evident.
"Faced with the choice of freezing to death or torching my collection of climbing books to stay warm I would read Mountains and Other Ghosts while the others cheerfully burned."
Will Gadd Rock and Ice
"Somers is a craftsman, and interweaves his themes beautifully throughout. Great writing, calm, authoritive and completely satisfying."
