  • 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!

  • Disturbing Bedtime Tales is an anthology that takes the medium of the fairytale and fable to new dimensions of dark and twisted, comedic surrealism. Dark and twisted, comedic surrealism. From the story of Brasnips The Pisswitch who terrorises a village by slashing on it's vegetable yield, to the fable of The Chronic Arsestronaut, the first sexist man in outer space. These fragmented parables will leave you wide eyed and wondering if there really is a God. The Liar The Witch & The Wardrobe, The Angels Of The Garden Shed and Wee Willy Knicker Sniffer are the cautionary tales the Brothers Grimm nearly wrote but thought better of it, and the ideas Hans Christian Andersen dismissed as the onset of madness. Enjoy. And unpleasant dreams.
