The boy Drimble is stuck in a life of violence, abuse and horror. All courtesy of the man Sigismondi. And a disembodied head called the head. Dragged around a shattered world, performing as part of the man Sigismondi’s weird musical routine for a wretched populace in the fetid music halls that offer the only entertainment left, Drimble takes his punishment, all the while never uttering a single word. But he hangs on… until, eventually, escape beckons. The third novel from world-unrenowned, non-award winning author, Graeme Wilkinson, Lost At The End Of The World is a post-apocalyptic Oliver Twist. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll wonder just how on earth you lived without this book in your life. Paperback, 210 pages, RRP £10 ISBN 978-1-908299-99-4 Published by Sixth Element Publishing, April 2017

Poor old Albumen Strunk. Not only does he have a nasty case of dental malpractice hanging over his head, he’s also just been killed in a terrible car accident. And what’s worse, he then finds his very confused, and supposedly dead self, chucked out of the local pub to be sent marching across a muddy moor toward a meeting that will change his after-life forever. Soon Albumen is spinning wildly through a heady mix of drinking contests, grumpy celestial beings, strange old men, dwarves, amnesia and a race against time to save existence itself! Will the universe live to tell the tale? Not bloody likely! Screw, God And The Universe is certainly a divisive tome... this is what the reviewers said: "grotesque and fairly hard to follow..." "If you like Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett you've got to read this book. Very entertaining!" "So strange and out there it kind of fell flat for me." "...one star!" "A fantastic read with more twists and turns than a twisty turny thing. Reading it again for the 3rd time." "I can typically handle a fairly substantial amount of not knowing what the hell is going on in a book, but this crossed my threshold and then some." Read it and make up your own mind! Hey, it's free anyway!
Meet Brinsley Kitten. He's a drunk. He's a coward. And he eats too much Battenberg cake. He's also a blabbermouth and usually said blabberings are harmless… but not this time. Oh no. This time danger beckons. Someone has been listening, you see. Someone who needs a capable man for a perilous mission. Someone who thinks Brinsley Kitten is just that man. Someone who couldn't be more wrong. Sadly the someone is not to know that and before our Brinsley can even finish his gin and ginger beer, he's whisked off to rescue an ancient race of space creatures from a terrible fate. Not to mention there's also a planet to be saved from a savage totalitarian regime. Thus Brinsley is soon blubbing his way through a mind-bending adventure of psychedelic drugs, slugs, wheelchair-bound madmen, drunken brawls, planetary destruction and psychotic space pirates. Oh and let’s not forget the Battenberg cake... that’s very important!
