The Rainbow Gate by Freda Warrington

Description: Another strand was a bizarre and rather daft dream I had, which was supposed to be an episode of Dr Who! In this dream, the idea was that when you died, you passed to the underworld and were given a 'soul doll'. If you could make the doll come to life, it meant you had a particularly strong spirit and had earned another bash at life.

I was also eager to incorporate a local legend, Black Annis, a child-eating witch who was supposed to dwell in Leicester - I moved her to Bradgate Park (as clearly a housing development had obliterated her cave!). In reality, Black Annis was no mere witch but the Wind Hag - the Crone manifestation of the great Goddess. These elements all went together to produce a strange and rather intriguing story! Cover artist Mick van Houten painted a terrific representation of Bradgate Park, from photos I sent him.

Also in this series are A Blackbird in Amber, A Blackbird in Silver, A Blackbird in Twilight, Darker Than the Storm Return to the Freda Warrington page.
