The first 100 words:

“Another sheep has gone missing, Mr Harris told me this morning,” the housekeeper, Mrs McMillan said in her broad Scottish accent, as she dusted the bookshelves properly.

“Really?” Henry Blythe replied automatically. He was not paying attention to his housekeeper, but replied every now and then with a non-commentarial comment.

Few people would let the housekeeper or servant talk endlessly to the master of the house, but then again, Mrs McMillan was more than a housekeeper. She was more like a part of the house itself and probably had been born there when the house was built, more than 150 years ago, in the beginning of the 18th century, Henry thought and then immediately got bad conscious.

About this story

“Under the Full Moon” was written last autumn when I had the wonderful privilege to visit Scotland for the very first time. I travelled by train from Oxford to Edinburgh and later on visited the beautiful town Perth, which sparked my imagination.

The story was also influenced by the sensational style of Robert Louis Stevenson novel “Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde”.

I did quite a lot of background research for the story, including the changes in the law regarding divorce during the 19th century in Britain, the Burke and Hare body-snatcher murders in Edinburgh, and of course the legend around the Irish werewolves “Faoladh”.
