I seem to be gravitating to the paranormal lately. In â€œScironâ€ we meet a ghost or apparition hanging around a new homeâ€™s second floor. The house is haunted by the ghost of a man killed on the tracks of an old railroad line, active during WWII. Rashleigh educates the reader about the alliance between Germany and Russia. We meet some Communists playing at hindering the war effort of Britain on their home soil. We read about the consequences of their efforts.
Sciron refers to an outlaw that robs travelers, forces them to kneel and wash his feet. â€œWhen they knelt, â€¦he kicked them over a cliff into the sea where they were eaten by a monstrous sea turtle.â€ The mythology featuring Sciron is a nice parallel to the novel written by Rashleigh. In life, there are usually consequences, and I guarantee youâ€™ll stick around for the action.
