More About the Author

Ian Marchant wasn't born in Newhaven in East Sussex in 1958, but he often claims that he was because of his deep embarrasment about his real place of birth.
But he really did grow up there, and went to school there, and he still sees it as home, even though it quite clearly isn't, given that he lives 250 miles away in Mid-Wales.
He didn't make a living singing in bands in the late 1970's and early 1980's; nor did he become a civil engineer in the late 1980's, as he didn't have any facility for the maths. He was surprised to learn recently that he didn't graduate in the History and Philosophy of Science with a Creative Writing Minor from Lancaster University in 1992. He really did live in a caravan for many years, but he didn't share it with a chicken called Ginger, who was rather an occasional visitor.
He put his career as a novelist on hold when his second novel 'The Battle for Dole Acre',(whose title he can't pronounce),didn't really sell. He didn't know much about railways or pubs when he started writing his acclaimed travel memoirs 'Parallel Lines' and 'The Longest Crawl',(though he does now). He did stay awake for countless nights to write his latest book 'Something of the Night'. He's now not writing a new book (provisional title 'A Hero for High Times') because he's writing this instead.
He does, however, teach Creative Writing at Birmingham City University, support Brighton and Hove Albion and sing in a cheesy cabaret duo called 'Your Dad', even though he's not really your dad, unless he is.
You can read his blog, which he doesn't update enough, via his website, www.ianmarchant.com

Format: Paperback
If you have children aged 8 to 13 with a taste for the gothic, and a propensity for hanging about on Hampstead Heath, this is the book for them. Everything that the far from average child needs to know about what lurks beneath London's pavements.

By Richard Newbold TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 20 May 2014
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a well written (both in terms of being full of factual and anecdotal information, and in the easy humorous style of the author) book describing the caves, tunnels and burial places beneath the capital. It is one of a series from the publishers and tends towards a "horrible histories" ghoulishness - lots of bodies and macabre goings on, and also has a guide to notable cemeteries (hopefully not going underground). The most fascinating bit to me was the description of London's subterranean preparations for WWII and the Blitz, the Cabinet War Rooms and so on. Great for the older child with a taste for something different.
