Now available at Autharium and all good ebook stores soon.
The life of Jethro Postlethwaite, as his recently-started diary will testify, has suddenly become very, very complicated…and very, very painful.
Having been kidnapped, locked in a dark cell and subjected to the unwelcome (and agonising) attentions of a Bodaslod Duelling Gauntlet, he is now a fugitive, on the run from THEM, sharing his head with someone else’s memories, and not looking forward at all to the prospect of having nanites injected into his eyes.
It seems like giving a lift to an alien was not such a good idea after all.
On the plus side though, he’s about to uncover the truth about the lives of every man, woman and child on the planet…
…and he will get to do this whilst travelling in a very nice camper van.

Just published – over twenty years of carefully selected poetry from Steve Smith.
Now available at Autharium and all good ebook stores.
The first volume of the collected poems of Steve Smith… rescued from notebooks… dug from ditches… plucked from trees… ‘live’ favourites and the obscure… love, politics, and the dreamworld… twenty-one years of life and thought…
The poems that have been selected for ‘Now and Then’ form something like a ‘Greatest Hits’ double album, says the author, covering the years 1987-2008. Personal themes of love and longing, political and social rage, and a seeking for the mythic, the mystical, characterise these lyrically honest, deeply engaging poems.
Influenced by singer-poets such as Dylan, Cohen and Roy Harper, as much as by Percy Bysshe Shelley and William Blake, folktale and legend, these poems present an authentic, original voice, whether it be skillfully depicting and defining a moment, criticising politics or society, or taking the reader upon a journey into a dream. Poems of love are naked. And there’s some rock and roll too!
A special shout out to Benjamin Akira Tallamy who designed the cover

A Chestnut Barn in Tuscany by Catherine Carabine
This is a true story which begins with an unexpected love affair of all things Italian.
An innocent evening stroll whilst on holiday, through the narrow ancient stone paved
streets of a medieval Italian hill town, leads to a proposal and a heart rending revelation being uncovered once back in England. The discovery subsequently steers a course to a very different way of life.
A Tuscan wedding follows together with a glimpse into the everyday life of the local Italians encountered along the way. An unfortunate accident causes a life threatening illness but the warmth, generosity and kindness shown by the Italian people comes to the fore.
All this is combined with an insight into some of the highs and lows of purchasing renovating and living in an old ruin nestled deep in the forest of the Northern Tuscan hills. A must read for lovers of all things Italian.
