Product Description

Product Description

Collection of twenty six short stories by award-winning zine writer Andrew Culture. Each story is short enough to consume during a lunch or tea break and delicious enough to leave a pleasant aftertaste on the readers' brain. There is no one common theme running throughout the book, but as with all of Andrew's writing there is a sprinkle of romance, a dash of dark humour and a tingle of anarchy.


A sinking feeling
Bananas and steam locomotives
Compulsory random life obsolescence
Dig for Victor
Duck stuck in fence
Football and machismo turned to my advantage, finally!
Malcolm’s rest
The curious case of the late night knocker
The jumping, scratching, dog squirt story
The feet with a thousand followers
Ask your body
Crossing paths
It wasn’t pink
Possible proposition outside Aldgate Underground Station
The curious incident of the black ties and the fake taxi
An Aunty, an Uncle and a food escape
How I found out that DIY tattoos are a bad idea
Big trouble and little chairs
Tapping into time
First impressions count (as weird)
Seeing life on trains
A Brief Introduction
To work for a wage, in sickness and in health
A malevolent morning
A Perilous U-turn?

More About the Author

Andrew is not one of those people. Andrew prefers to run at life face first, mop up the mess and then share the results with his readers.

Andrew Culture is a loud player of bass guitar, accident-prone bike-punk, award winning zine writer and astonished parent of an adventurous toddler.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun stories 16 Nov 2013
By Draegon
Format:Kindle Edition
Exactly as the title suggests, thus is a collection of short stories.
Unlike some collections that follow a theme, this one jumps from one topic to another, one genre to something quite unrelated. You therefore have no idea at the start of each story where the author is going to take you.
A refreshing book full of surprises, tears and laughter. Well written, this book will keep you interested from the front cover to the back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cool Collection 12 Nov 2013
By Joe
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I did enjoy this superb collection of short stories. Some I felt a little disappointed that they were so short but only because they were so enjoyable.
I loved the varied styles of writing. Sometimes wondering whats going to come at me next.
I shall probably be reading through them again.
Also I look forward to a full length novel from this talented writer.

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting read 31 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An entertaining mix of (I assume true) anecdotes and fictional short stories.

2 or 3 of the short stories are near future (slightly political) sci-fi. (Don't be put off if this not your genre its only a couple of them) and I had to remind myself that I wasn't reading George Orwell, Aldous Huxley or John Wyndham.

Some of the others elicited a smirk at the end (I would love to ask the author if one particular story is a true anecdote).

I would recommend reading it as it happily fills a couple of lunch times, my only criticism is that it lacks identity and a central theme being neither a collection all fiction or all anecdotes.

If Mr Culture would care to write a full length Sci-fi novel I would be first in the queue to purchase it based on his 2 or 3 examples of the genre here.
