  • Stories are the lifeblood of human culture and more particularly, storytelling has sharpened social thinking, encouraged cooperation and been at the centre of human creativity and learning. In his forty years as an educator, Nigel Northcott has found stories a helpful way to explain, illustrate and explore points and issues. These one-hundred-and-one stories are a blend, and whilst none are blue, they are: old, new and borrowed. Several are stories that Nigel has heard or been told and for which there may be one or more ‘original’ sources or that ubiquitous pen of tradition. What is common to the stories is the element of a moral, a meaning or lesson to be learnt and pleasure in reading them.
  • Gritty and raw, POETRY AND STORIES FROM A WORKING CLASS MIND by David Randall is a hard-hitting collection of poetry and prose with an underlying message that life can be better if we can just be better to each other. David Andrew Randall was born in 1978 and raised in Hardwick, a council estate in Stockton on Tees. It was a time when doors were left unlocked and schools never had to be fenced off. The cornfields grew high and were a playground for all. Having worked since he was 14, and suffering from long term agoraphobia and depression, this collection of poetry and stories is David’s first book. It is a raw, often harsh, but poignant and moving reflection of the life he has seen and experienced in the working class streets of Teesside. His message…? Life is hard but it is also easy and beautiful at times. You just have to open your eyes and be better to each other… Find out more at www.david-randall.co.uk

  • 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.
