Murmurations free pdf Freud observed that birds 'don't seem to be submitted to the same laws of gravity as us', although without gravity they would die, as they need it to swallow.

Award-winning editor Nicholas Royle brings together previously published stories by Daphne du Maurier, Anna Kavan, Russell Hoban and others with brand-new tales by contemporary writers including Bill Broady, Adam Marek, Regi Claire and many more. With a foreword by Angelica Michelis, senior lecturer in English at Manchester Metropolitan University. Contributors' royalties and editor's fee to be donated to the RSPB.
