God & the Ghostown

About this book

For those who like their writing to be neither fact nor fiction but both, then the writer has prepared a delectable meal. In his last six titles he has developed a new type of book, if not a new style of writing. Call it what you will pot pourri, chop suey, sweet and sour, or even smorgasbord the result is attractive.

Geoffrey Bingham is a competent story teller who knows that truth comes through best as narrative. He also knows that theology has its best medium in poetry truth that appeals to human intuition. Also he has revived for his own purposes the essay. To have these three forms of writing in one volume is quite pleasing.

Do not be deceived, however; for the author is at his most cunning ploy for good communication. Take, for example, the three stories which form the title of the book: are they fact, fiction, allegory or fantasy? Probably something of all these things. In themselves they are both chilling and exhilarating, especially if we perceive what lies behind the artless description of a country ghost town in its anger, its decay and its revival.

The painting of the ghost town is by PRO HART. Who better than he could depict the decay of an outback town that has known better days? Artist and writer combine to create yet another memorable book.
