Past; Tense
Past; Tense
by Joe Harding
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars a great collection to make you think, smile and cry, 5 July 2010
This review is from: Past; Tense (Paperback)
Joe Harding writes a great short story, classic twists or building crescendos of emotion, it's all here, involving you, as he rightly states on his back cover. There is a good mix of amusingly dark tales and poignant endgames to lives; his writing is descriptive but never heavy and he displays the hand of an author who deserves mainstream publishing. Buy this book for yourself, then buy it as a present because you won't want to give your first copy away and you can be in at the start of his career!


River of Dreams
River of Dreams
by Vanessa Harvey
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.94

5.0 out of 5 stars Not quite what you might expect, 7 Oct 2009
This review is from: River of Dreams (Paperback)
This is a story written for a romance label, and it is a romance, but not your classic bodice ripper, it's a cleverer thing. It's a story about a woman of a certain age, who decides to make a break from her old life and starts working in a small boatyard on the Thames. However much she tries to keep her personal and professional life apart, the smallness of the business means the family that own it drag her into their affairs and that of their friends and customers. There is pathos, humour and real insight into every character presented, and you can identify with the heroine as a real person, which is not something I personally find I can do with your average romance story. If you like romance you will enjoy this thoroughly. If you like a good story, well written you will also enjoy this.

Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Synopsis, 21 Jun 2009
This review is from: Interaction (Paperback)
Dix Mardun has spent his life trying to be a loner, yet responsibility has always found him. Now, he's determined he wants the quiet life, but when he transmits an image of contraband from his ship, he finds himself again, questioning that desire. The answer doesn't come cheap; his girlfriend's life, his faith in the scientific method, his own sanity. Could he lose them all?
This is a story set in the middle of the twenty first century when the world has changed but the important things haven't: your ship, your lover, your friends and your species.


The Pictish Symbol Stones of Scotland (Rcahms)
The Pictish Symbol Stones of Scotland (Rcahms)
by Iain Fraser
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars comprehensive and informative, 7 Feb 2009
This is a wonderful book even if you are only mildly interested in the Picts or Scottish archaeology. It is fascinating to read, in the various introductions, how long scholars and communities have recorded and treasured these signposts to the past. The images themselves are mostly photographic, but even the hand drawn allow you to see pieces long lost and to build up a picture of the visual language the Picts used across the landscape of Scotland. It is a beautiful reference book and also worth reading before you intend to visit Scotland as you might just be able to see some of these stones in situ and re-connect with another age.
