Book Description

1 May 2013 Little Book Of... (History Press)
The Little Book of Aviation is a collection of facts, figures and interesting stories from the world of flight. Sad, humorous, baffling and astounding stories abound, from the pioneering days of the Wright Brothers to the present day, and covering everything from great milestones, famous names who’ve served, and the greatest of aircraft icons; phantom pilots and aircraft and a glossary of slang; the origins of plane-spotting and unusual aircraft names; great feats and enduring mysteries; lucky escapes and great aircraft in the movies… the trivia is limitless and will appeal to everyone, whether you want help telling your Spitfire from your Messerschmitt or you know a Spitfire I from a Spitfire II!

More About the Author

I've been writing for many years: comedy for radio, TV and books and more recently non-fiction history books.

The Second World War: A Miscellany is published in August 2014 by Summersdale and is a companion to the The First World War: A Miscellany. Both tell the story of their respective wars in a miscellany format.

If History Was Scottish was published by Luath Press and looks at world history through a comedic Caledonian perspective. If you've ever wondered what Barack Obama would say if Scottish, this is the book for you.

The Little Book of Aviation is a miscellany of all things aviation and if you're interested in flight you're guaranteed to discover things you never knew.

The Glasgow Book of Days was published in January 2013. It features events from the dear green city's past - one or more for each day of the year.

Chronologia: History by the Minute was published in August 2012 by The History Press. It presents moments of history through the time of day they took place, to make a virtual day featuring events such as 911, JFK's assassination, Roswell's 'UFO', Charles I's execution, Titanic, Hindenburg, man landing on the moon amongst many more.

I've also co-written two other books, 'I See Modern Britain' and 'I See Xmas', which are packed full of observations on modern life which came out in 2008.

The Unspeakable Voices series are parody oral history Kindle books reflecting made-up memories of different decades. They are due to be collected into a 20th Century edition alongside new material at some point in the future.
