About The Stranger Times
The Stranger Times is a paranormal newspaper based in Manchester and dedicated to reporting the weird and wonderful from around the world. It is like the Fortean Times’ unloved trashy cousin that gets drunk at a wedding and throws up in the mother-of-the-bride’s handbag.
The managing editor is Vincent Banecroft, the former darling of Fleet Street. He has had a fall from grace that makes the Hindenburg look like a largely successful flight.
The Stranger Times is a paranormal novel written by C.K. McDonnell, the alter-ego of Caimh McDonnell, published on January 14th 2021.
‘Wonderfully dark, extremely funny, and evocative of Terry Pratchett – which I think is the highest compliment I can give.’
ADAM KAY, bestselling author of This is Going to Hurt
‘I tore through The Stranger Times. Like an entertaining collision between the worlds of Mick Herron and Charlie Stross, it is novel that proves ancient eldritch horror is no match for old-school journalism.’
CHRISTOPHER BROOKMYRE, bestselling author of Black Widow
‘Hilarious. You’ll never look at Manchester the same way again.’
Enjoyable and entertaining throughout, this is a book that will demand consumption in the fewest possible sittings.
