After spending his first twenty years with his supportive working class parents in a village largely run by middle-class professional values, Richard decides to move away. As a young boy growing up surrounded by farming people, including his father, two uncles and many other family members, his mother had always encouraged him not to end up as a farm worker. After a short spell working for a local furniture company, and running away with an underage girl to Scotland, he goes to sea for a while. Afterwards, slowly but surely, he begins to develop an enjoyable and productive career in forestry, working around the country, each time moving to a higher and better paid job. After nearly thirty years away from his place of birth, although he does visit his family and friends during that time, he decides to move back to where his parents were living, where he develops a new career and finds a new partner. But perhaps he had paid a high price for leaving his home village in the first place!

Against a backdrop of political change in South Eastern Europe, the story embraces disgruntled communists, cold war warriors, intrigue, deception and finally murder. Sir Arthur Cumberpot has an unspectacular career which is swiftly drawn to a close when he is appointed British Ambassador to Bulgaria. Due to some unforeseen mishaps his wife Annabel is accused of being a spy and sent home to their house in Watlington while her background is checked by MI5. Annabel is guilty of nothing, other than being the biological daughter of Jim Kilbey, Britain’s most famous spy. It seems that a jealous god has sought to visit the sins of the father upon her, but so has everyone else. She is the victim of serendipity, but also of cover ups, the duplication of thin evidence and exaggeration. But she is also heartless, treacherous, self indulgent and without shame.

This is a travelogue with a difference! Since Henry James there have been many impressions of an American abroad and we have become used to seeing the world ‘under western eyes’. But what about seeing the world from a very different perspective - not from the standpoint of an affluent westerner, or even an anglicized foreigner like Conrad, but through the eyes of an Iranian who has not had the privilege of taking freedom for granted. Iran itself comes under close scrutiny as the author tries to come to terms with daily life in a country where freedom of speech, freedom of movement, and freedom to wear the clothing of one’s choice does not exist. Imagine, for instance, visiting a tourist town for a holiday break and being picked up by the police because you are not a local, and then inadvertently finding yourself with a rope around your neck in a public execution? The book is a real page-turner as one follows the author’s frequent bids for freedom, finding himself repeatedly in a prison cell, punting across a turbulent river to enter Greece without a visa, finding temporary solace and comfort in the arms of a young prostitute in Bulgaria, suffering the indignity of being treated as a slave by the high-minded bosses in Japan, and running away from the regular police raids in Cyprus. But not all is doom and gloom - by no means, for apart from the author’s downright honesty, sharing and confiding his innermost thoughts, there is his irresistible humor that never fails to see the funny side in the events and the people that he describes. With its unique perspective of what it is like to be down and out, and sometimes affluent too, in Iran and the countries the author visits, this book provides an unforgettable experience.

The building and repair work carried out by dangerously incompetent and unscrupulous builders, often known as “cowboys,” is widely reported in newspapers and investigations into their nefarious activities make popular and thought-provoking television documentaries. This publicity helps to warn the unwary of the misery, unjustifiable costs and even death that can result by employing unskilled building workers to carry out improvements and, often-unnecessary, repairs to their homes. The cowboy builder will always ask for “cash-up-front” before he starts to work. Later, he will ask for more cash, because he “underestimated the work and material needed to finish the job”. If the householder is unable or unwilling to part with more money, the cowboy will leave the property in such a state that it is an unsafe dwelling. This is the story of two men who take deadly retributive action against cowboy builders.

These insightful stories vividly evoke rural life in Scotland as seen through the eyes of the young protagonist. The immediacy of such details as riding a bike at speed, the ringing of a bell, the rituals of Halloween as well as the authenticity of the Scots language, all contribute to a powerful re-creation of a past age. In the easy flowing style one senses an artistic sensibility. "Edith Buchanan's work recalls a pastoral Scotland before the age of technology. In the musicality of the language one hears an echo of Lewis Grassic Gibbon, Jessie Kesson and the Canadian writer Alistair MacLeod."

Betrayed by their political masters, deserted by their cavalry support, faced with an enemy fresh from their victory at Killiecrankie which outnumbered them five to one, only half equipped with firearms, and led by a man whose General assessed him as "not much of a soldier", what chance did the untried three-month-old Regiment have? This book tells the story of William Cleland, the first Cameronian commanding officer, and Alexander Shields, the first chaplain, who played a critical role in Scotland during the Revolution of 1689, and were instrumental in raising the Cameronian Regiment. Viscount Dundee had raised the Highlands for the ousted King James, and the story reaches its climax with the battles of Killiecrankie and Dunkeld. Yet despite all the problems the unblooded Cameronian Regiment faced, they fought the battle of Dunkeld with such courage and determination that they won a significant victory, breaking the back of the first Jacobite rebellion, and providing stability for social and religious changes in Scotland which still endure.

The scene is set in Southern Ontario during the emergence of the l960's. In the format of purposely brief chapters, the theme unfolds a narrative of events which search and expose the tangled emotional alterations of a virtuoso who desperately yearns to bring her austere demons to rest. The result is an explicit non-cliché colour portrait of devouring pathos and perverse humour; which correlate and blend a relationship of semi-autobiographical sequences with semi-fiction. From the onset the twists and turns of her life will promise the effect of a compelling and curious realism of empathy; that will captivate, enthral and follow the heart of even the most casual reader.

Naseby: This Phantom Ground chronicles the lives of the Eachelhursts and the Wellbeloveds. The intertwining of past and present play a crucial part in the lives of all involved. James Eachelhurst, a Major in Cromwell's New Model Army, finds a new life in Wychwood, as does Katherine Anderton in modern times. Religion and politics play integral parts of the characters' lives. A passionate belief in their cause makes the opposing armies exceedingly brutal and bitter foes. There is no pity; revenge is instant and bloody. Events occur that change England forever. The saviour is the deep abiding love of family life. Audrey's first book in The Battle Trilogy, Talavera: Tongued with Fire, was set in the present and the Regency period. Naseby, the second book, is about the period she finds most fascinating. The outcome of the English Civil War affected not only England but, over the course of time, Parliamentary Democracy worldwide.

The most ancient of stories, Homer's Iliad, is resuscitated by the fertile imagination of Nick Berry, woven in with his exciting swords-and-sorcery character Zona, whose name means life-a princess of the most extraordinary vitality and youthful energy who brings justice and succour to the trapped Helen of Troy. She may or may not have been at Troy, but could history and legend have unfolded as this gifted author conceives it, had she been there? Helped by her sprightly sidekick Xanthia (whose Greek name means 'yellow' in keeping with her blonde hair) and an old flame, her reason for being there is to fashion a new start for princess Helen. In doing so, might she change history and myth? Forget X-Boxes, other computer games. If it's action, non-stop excitement and fantasy you're after, pick up this book!

Rhodesia, in 1975 and a bloody vicious civil war is at its height-a war between the white minority supported by the black majority and the ZAPU and ZANU terrorist groups, supported by Zambia and Mozambique. Kensington, a small town in the farming belt, has been the subject of several terrorist attacks, but with only a small police force for defence and the local T.A. unit having been called up for service on the Zambia border, the situation appears grim. Until Iffor Meredith turns up on a pilgrimage, that is. A deadly ambush on the "Dix" family and his escape from a land mine attack makes Iffor determined to offer resistance of some form or other to the terrorists. His application to join the Rhodesian Army has been accepted and he sets about forming a small militia. With all the fit men already on call up, who can he recruit from? Then he's invited to a darts match at the Moth Club and meets up with the remnants of the town's Fire Brigade, the men considered too old for call up. And so Blue Watch is engaged!

About two weeks ago, a man came running into this station asking the Sergeant here to come at once to the jetty in Blyth harbour. Two fishermen had come across a macabre scene... When the Sergeant and a constable went with the messenger, they discovered the body of a man in a fishing net, half submerged in the water. The net was tied to the jetty. It looked as though the man had got himself tangled up in the net and had possibly tripped and fallen into the water...' But was it an accident, or something more sinister that took the life of Big Cam Boise, the loudmouth bully of Blyth who everyone hated, who threw his weight about in the 'Fishermen's Lodge' public house, demanding free drinks, beating up the women if they refused his advances, and generally causing mayhem, forcing the patrons, including the harmless old codgers, Tom and Gerry, who liked to ogle the women and sing drunken songs, to take refuge in the other drinking houses of Blyth. As Al, the landlord of the 'Fishermen's Lodge' said, something had to be done about this loudmouth bully. Will Detective Inspector Luke Forem, from Morpeth, uncover the true facts? The reader will certainly enjoy this very readable 'whodunit'!

Two women - one Bahraini, one American - are in pursuit of an ancient treasure before it is spirited out of the country by ruthless Art thieves. The island of Bahrain in the Arabian Gulf is the setting for this mystery. It emphasizes two features of the country: an old residence in the traditional Gulf architecture, the Windtower House and an archaeological site of the Dilmun civilization dating from the third millennium B.C. Dilmun was the pivotal point in the ancient culture triangle between Mesopotamia and the Indus region. The mystery evolves around the theft of a Dilmun treasure, a young Bahraini woman, Mona, and her best friend, the American Faith, who works for an agency that specializes in the recovery of stolen Art. It is Faith's first visit to the Middle East. She starts out somewhat naively but soon questions the usual Western image of the meek Arab woman as she learns about local society. Two elderly Bahraini women, one a traditional herbalist, the other a sweetseller, feature strongly in the final retrieval of the treasure.

Two men meet in a pub, one a psychotherapist, the other, friend and confidante, a priest. The former, Frank Appleton, is fraught with the pains of unrequited love. The latter, Fr. Alec, is increasingly and disturbingly haunted by the activities of a serial rapist - an antagonist who bears a peculiar grudge against the Roman Catholic church. The story tells how each man is variously affected by the unfolding crimes and the powerful personality of their sinister perpetrator. This novel is unusual in that it eschews a straightforward narrative and evolves for the most part through the letters and diary of the counselling protagonist. By adopting the perspective of 'the wounded healer' the author is able to give added immediacy to the impact of the criminal and to explore as he does so various themes: these include the viability of faith in the modern world, the potential for evil and madness when integrity becomes compromised, and the endeavour to maintain a sexual ethic in a secular environment. Of interest to all who have suffered love's troubles, this book will hold special appeal for those affected by the ambiguities of religion and who yet strive towards a spiritual goal.

Nick Berry’s tongue-in-cheek divine comedy is certainly more readable and enjoyable than The Satanic Verses! The ancient Greeks would have approved the apocalyptical themes and theatrical settings. The novel is a roller-coaster ride through heaven and hell—a refreshing change from the Dawkins Delusion, and provokes some interesting questions into the reality of divine existence.

So what if the Parousia, or the Rapture does take place?   What if Christ returns to Earth while some are at sea?   Would some be taken, and some left?  What might happen to those passengers on a sea voyage?

Love in a Nutbag presents a combination of literary and intellectual as well as sexual and romantic interest. The story is a “parallel montage” in the lives of two women —— the modern granddaughter and the dead grandmother, suggesting how the two lives are bound together in a common quest for those epiphanies, or moments of intense (often sexual) fulfillment, that come out of the “nutbag” that our otherwise humdrum and prosaic lives occasionally present to us.
