After the Crash (Paperback)

David Pickford

-  

David Pickford's After the Crash and other stories is a collection of nine short stories that will take you from The Door to the River to the wildest reaches of the Sahara in The Jahannam's Lair; on board Twenty Red Twenty, the first manned mission to Mars, and into the labyrinth of Cain and Abel's psycho-drama in The End of the Past. Five of the stories compose a series of vividly descriptive episodes of mountain literature, where the perilous conditions of the adventurous life are explored and questioned, extreme skiers are tested to the limit, an alpinist suddenly finds himself marooned high in the Himalaya after a plane crash, the border between myth and reality is blurred during a long solo climb, and a tragic mystery is solved by a lone climber who reassembles the lost pieces of The Map of Thunder Canyon. The remaining four stories range from the visionary dreams of a child to the ideology of a Waziristani jihadist. Controversial, poetic, melancholy, original and thought provoking, each story is revealed in just enough detail to let your imagination conceive what might happen next.
