One moment looking down at the half-buried bodies, then looking up to speak to their strangely uncommunicative guide. Just blackness, a ragged hole cut in it by the beam of the head torch, and sleety, swirling, lunatic parachutes of snow. No human shape. And looking back, two sets of tracks leading towards the following team, tracks already being softened round their edges. Two sets. Walking with Ghosts is a collection of writings, all of which involve walking of some kind and many of them invoking ghostly presences or memories. Whether it s high drama, flight of fantasy or chuckling comedy, most of Alan s writing relates to mountains and mountaineers, a world where he is completely at home. Neil Reid, Mountaineering Scotland
