F.G. Cottam is the author of the Colony trilogy, three novels which explore the enduring enigma of New Hope Island, a desolate Hebridean wilderness from which a thriving community abruptly vanished almost 200 years ago.
The series begins with The Colony, continues with Dark Resurrection and concludes with his most recent book, Harvest of Scorn. Atmospherically located, the trilogy focuses on the present-day repercussions of an occult curse inflicted in revenge by a dying sorcerer.
Combining mystery and history in equal parts, and involving an all too human cast of characters, this three-book story is a saga of ambition and betrayal, courage and loyalty, dark magic and terrible secrets slowly uncovered.
Cottam’s paranormal debut The House of Lost Souls won The Children of the Night Award, was a Times Book Club choice and was translated into 16 languages. He is the author of eleven full-length novels, titles among which include The Waiting Room, The Memory of Trees and Brodmaw Bay.
