Carlol's Christmas Front cover

Union Flag

usa

The heart warming tale of a father, a daughter, a pair of ice skates and a set of flashing lights.

It is Christmas Eve and in Acacia Avenue the lights are on, big style - flashing lights on every house - except at number 26 where Brian sits in darkness waiting for his daughter Carol to come home. This will be the first Christmas they will have spent together since Edna died.

This story is the first of a series of 'Entertainments': too long for a short story, too short for a novel or novella. It is a story that can be read in one go - in an evening, in an afternoon, on the train, on the plane, wherever, whenever.

John Walford's wry take on the human condition recording the world with the same sardonic eye that served him so well as Wally the cartoonist

John has lived a full and varied life, but unlike most of us, he has remembered many of those wry moments that tell so much about ourselves and those around us. His stories, honestly autobiographical, record the vicissitudes of life from his primary school days working and playing cricket with his world famous manufacturing employer, to his experiences as a conductor on the railways. And yes, John is a runner.

After a life full of snowballs, footballs, and cricket balls John now spends his life on the balls of his feet; whether running or standing in a swaying train, he has time to observe and reflect. He reflects on opportunities gained and opportunities lost: here, each story is a sketch , a cartoon in the original sense of the word.

A powerfully imagined futuristic thriller. The Keepers conjures up a menacing twenty-second century England fragmented by civil war and a Great Devastation. The law of the land is in the hands of the Keepers who enforce peace and happiness at any cost. To want knowledge and freedom is treason. To rebel is the ultimate crime. This is the story of Esther, a member of a secret network of dissidents, who risks life and love to break free, for herself and for the future; of Callum, a powerful rebel who mysteriously appears and demands Esther's collaboration. Against a background of chilling hostility and suspicion, a fragile trust develops united by one aim: to overthrow the regime of the Keepers. Building up to a searing climax, this is an unputdownable novel about power, betrayal and a passion for freedom which ultimately transcends both.

Geology of Desire

What do you do when you witness your erstwhile girlfriend being pushed over the cliff at Whitby Abbey? Go to the police? Well… perhaps there are complications: it was a policeman doing the pushing; and my being there might easily be construed as complicity or even guilt; and more to the point, I knew the policeman. Well! I had known Bartholomew Fair since childhood, he was almost family.
I was studying geology at Hull, I knew this coast like the back of my hand, or thought I did. This one event had me re-evaluating not just the rocks on the North Yorkshire shore but the layers of relationships with my friends, cleaner, tutor, Carrie, my girlfriend, the now dead Drew, my parents; and what did this have to do with events during the last war?
